Alfred Burt was born in Marquette, Michigan. His family moved to Pontiac, Michigan when he was two after his father, Bates Burt, became pastor of an Episcopal church there. At the age of 10, having shown an early interest in music, Alfred received his first musical instrument, a cornet, as a present from his parents. Though he would learn to play several other instruments, including the piano, Alfred spent most of his life playing cornet and trumpet in bands and orchestras, with a special interest in jazz.

Burt studied music at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and graduated with a Bachelor of Music degree in 1942.

A tradition that the elder Burt had begun upon moving to Pontiac in 1922 was the creation of a Christmas card, which he sent to family members and parishioners. On these cards were original Christmas carols, with both the words and music by the Reverend Burt. For the family Christmas card in 1942, Bates asked his son to write the music for that year's carol, "Christmas Cometh Caroling." From then on, Alfred would write the music for the family's Christmas cards, and the "Alfred Burt carols" were born.

Through the early part of 1953, Burt complained of a persistent virus and fatigue. Eventually agreeing to a thorough examination, he was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. He spent his final months in California. For the first time, his carols were going to be recorded.

James Conkling, husband of Donna King Conkling, and at that time the president of Columbia Records, was informed of Burt's failing health and organized the project, assembling an all-star choir of Hollywood singers (from the King Family Singers) to perform Burt's four-part harmonies. Recording sessions for the older carols took place in late 1953 in the North Hollywood LDS Church with Burt present. Meanwhile, to fill the album, Burt was assigned four new carols. One of them, "O Hearken Ye," was sent on the 1953 family Christmas card.

Burt finished the last of his carols, "The Star Carol", on February 5, 1954. Less than 24 hours later, he died. "The Star Carol" would be used on the final Burt family Christmas card that holiday season.

The original analog recordings have been out of print for several decades now and in an effort to save these original recordings, Classical Music Discoveries was able to restore the original recordings in full digital format.

This lost and out of print recording is now available on our CD store at www.ClassicalRecordings.co for only $1.99 as a digital download. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to own this extremely rare recording today.

For many years, we have wanted to have a Symphonic or Concert Band in our musical family. Now that wish has been fulfilled by the Dixie State University Symphony Band which is under the direction of Gary Caldwell.  Maestro Caldwell is well known to all our listeners as the conductor of the Southwest Symphony Orchestra.

The DSU Symphonic Band, as told by Gary, “...is a young band with great potential.”  We have to agree with Gary.  While the band is not used to the formalities associated with live recording, we feel their first recording with us is quite excellent and we are looking forward to featuring this band on a regular basis.

For their first broadcast with us, we are pleased to bring to our listeners their concert from December 5, 2014.  This is a live recording from the Eccles Concert Hall on the Dixie State University Campus in St. George, Utah.

The DSU Symphony Band performs:

  • Celebrations by Earl C. Benson

  • A Fireside Christmas an arrangement by Sammy Nestico

  • Abide With Me arranged by Jay Dawson

  • A Home Alone Christmas which features music by John Williams from the movie Home Alone 2 - Lost in New York arranged by Paul Lavender

  • Greensleeves orchestrated for band by Alfred Reed

  • A Most Wonderful Christmas arranged by Robert Sheldon

  • Angels in the Architecture by Frank Ticheli with featured soloist Joyce Jacox

We hope our 450 million listeners all over the world will join with us in welcoming the Dixie State University Symphony Band to the Classical Music Discoveries’ family.

Now we are proud to present Celebrations!

Simon Boccanegra is an opera with a prologue and three acts by Giuseppe Verdi from an Italian libretto by Francesco Maria Piave, based on the play Simón Bocanegra by Antonio García Gutiérrez, whose play El trovador had been the basis for Verdi's 1853 opera, Il trovatore.

Simon Boccanegra was first performed at Teatro La Fenice in Venice on 12 March 1857. Given the complications of the original plot and the generally poor popular response the opera dropped out of favor after 1866. Finally, 23 years later, Verdi's publisher persuaded the composer to revise the opera, with text changes to be prepared by Arrigo Boito, the librettist who aspired to work with the aging composer on a project which eventually became a new opera, Otello, but to which Verdi had not totally committed at that time.

The revised version of Simon Boccanegra, with the now famous Council Chamber scene, was first performed at La Scala in Milan on 24 March 1881. It is this version which is the one frequently performed today.
