Scheduled to perform is Festival Strings, a coalition of local musicians headed by Diane Siminski, founder of the Lompoc Pops Orchestra, who has prepared a program of historical music to pay homage to the mission.

"I thought it would be important for the music to be music that was around the time of the mission," she said.

"The next one is a medley of Christmas carols," Siminski said. "It starts with 'Away in the Manger,' which, the poetry was written by St. Francis of Italy in 1223, but the music was composed by an anonymous German in the 15th century."
Many of the early Christmas carols, Siminski continued, were derived from early church music. Another selection from the program for instance, "Oh Come Emanuel," came from a plain song, an evolved form of Gregorian chant. Other carols came from the folk tradition.
"In the case of 'What Child is This,' which is also called 'Greensleeves,' it came around Shakespeare's time and was probably passed from troubadour to troubadour," she said.
Siminski, as the founder and concertmistress for the Lompoc Pops, has a large number of musicians to choose from when assembling the Festival Strings. For this concert, she's calling on the talents of violist Tom Turner, violinist and cellist Jed Beebe, guitarist Jeff DeVine, and soprano Holly J. Williams.
Celebrate history
La Purisima Mission celebrates its founding day Dec. 8 with a mass at noon and an evening concert featuring Festival Strings including Diane Siminski, Tom Turner, Jed Beebe, and Jeff Devine with vocalist Holly J. Williams at 7 p.m. La Purisima Mission State Park is at 2295 Purisima Road, Lompoc.
...
"Well, the fact of the missions is that they were so perfectly built, the acoustics are just amazing," Siminski said. "Every time I touch the strings I can feel it, and I just love it."
To complete the experience, the path to the sanctuary-and the entire concert-will be lit by candles, all prepared by the mission's docents.
"It's a big birthday, and I think we should always thank the docents as a community because they do wonders," Siminski said.
