My husband and I attended the Virginia Glee Club's annual Christmas Concert held at the Paramount. We thoroughly enjoyed this concert under the expert direction of Frank Albinder, with one exception.
The program was advertised as a Christmas concert, so we were surprised to see one of his selections, "Zikr." This song has nothing to do with Christmas. It is a Muslim chant to their God. I think it is disingenuous to insert an Islamic chant, however good and exciting the music, which is the antithesis of Christian music.
