Fergal Carroll's Winter Dances highlights the three peak months of the season. Aurora Borealis by Rossano Galante portrays the glory of this light show in the sky. Hanukkah is celebrated with The Eighth Candle by Steve Reisteter. Traditional themes of Christmas are highlighted in Claude T. Smith's Symphonic Prelude on Adeste Fidelis and 'Twas in the Moon of Wintertime by Robert W. Smith, an interpretation of the Huron Carol.
