Peabody Interlude – Coventry Carol

1 Written by: | Thursday, Dec 13, 2012 5:12pm

Get into the spirit of the season with this lovely video from the Peabody Institute at Hopkins.  From the You Tube post:

There’s a reason Christmas carols start filling the air before we have polished off the last piece of Halloween candy.  Craving a sense of community and drawn to ritual, we welcome the return of seasonal music, even if the calendar says we have several weeks to go before December 25, according to Jeff Sharkey, director of the Peabody Institute at Johns Hopkins University.

In this video, Sharkey shares his personal history with the Coventry Carol and explains why he is drawn in by the beauty he hears in both its musical structure and the story it tells.
