Giving Thanks with Music

November 30, 2013

Thanksgiving can mean many things in music. Handel expressed thanks for the end of a war in his Royal Fireworks Music, Haydn gave thanks for bountiful harvests in his oratorio The Seasons, and Charles Ives got nostalgic through old hymn tunes in his "Thanksgiving" section of his New England Holiday Symphony. We'll stay in a Thanksgiving mood with some great composers.
