With kind help from the Chevron Corporation, we returned to the Sacramento Cathedral for Christmas a few years ago when it reopened after its magnificent renovation. In the intervening years we were at the Mondavi Center in Davis, where our faithful Sacramento public followed. It feels right to be back in the Cathedral, and we were thrilled to see it packed to capacity with just under 1000 people. Audience favorites on this program continue to be Steven Sametz' "O Magnum Mysterium " which we commissionedthis year, and our Russian set by Chesnokov and Rachmaninoff. The program ends with Joe Jennings' "Everywhere I go" medley, followed by an encore of "Silent Night" or Biebl "Ave Maria" depending on whether it is the longer or shorter version of the program.
