Christmas 2012: Carols of Burt, Betinis, & Bradford
Many of us have either sung or heard the beloved carols of the venerable Alfred Burt whose annual Christmas card to friends and family included a new composition each year for the holiday season. (Alfred Burt?s father, the Reverend Bates Burt, actually began the tradition and delivered 15 carols and cards over the course of his lifetime.) Burt?s grand- niece Abbie Burt Betinis, resumed her uncle?s tradition. She is an accomplished composer and 2009 McKnight Fellow. Her carols are a lovely addition to the music of the season and Dr. Bradford will introduce some of them to Utah audiences. We?ll also sing a few of the traditional Burt carols and some new Christmas selections of Barlow Bradford.
