Members of Anonymous 4 in NPR's Studio 4A.
The women of Anonymous 4 — Marsha Genensky, Susan Hellauer, Jaqueline Horner and Johanna Maria Rose — join NPR's Fred Child in Studio 4A to perform a selection of holiday music.
The women, together as a group for 17 years, recently announced that the 2003-2004 season would be their last as a full-time recording and performing ensemble. They talk with Child about making that monumental decision.
Anonymous 4 is accompanied on several tracks by harpist Andrew Lawrence King.
Here is a playlist from the performance:
- "The Holly and the Ivy"
- "The Lamb" (Tavener)
- "Grene Groweth the Holly"
