The St. James Basilica Choir is presenting “The Winter Rose” cantata by Joseph M. Martin at 7 p.m. Saturday at St. James Basilica. “The Winter Rose” is set around the familiar melody of Lo, How a Rose E’er Blooming and the symbolism of the rose — as it first appears in the Garden to the thorns on Jesus’ crown. It is a story told in song and instrumental music. Within the hour-long performance, readings will intersperse songs and the music of chimes, piano, drums and flute.Word count: 174
