AVE MARIA, Fla. -- America's newest town is rising up in the midst of a dusty tomato field in southwest Florida. And if the Catholics building it have their way, this ultraconservative community with a 65-foot crucifix at its center will be the closest thing to heaven on Earth. They envision a town that adheres to strict religious values, a place devoid of adult bookstores, strip clubs, massage parlors and abortion clinics. At one time they had planned to prohibit the sale of contraceptives at drugstores and to bar X-rated channels from cable television.

Interim director Betty-Ann Lynerd and the Arundel Vocal Arts Society presented their Christmas "A Season of New Traditions" concert last week at Calvary United Methodist Church in Annapolis, showcasing the ensemble's strengths in a cappella music, precise enunciation and pleasing harmonies. For her first concert with AVAS, Lynerd chose a program that included a hymn to the Virgin Mary, set to the 12th-century harmonies of Hildegarde of Bingen, and another "Ave Maria," set in seven-voice parts by 20th-century German composer Franz Biebl.

YPSILANTI, Mich. - In a former elementary school gym, framed by green-tiled walls lined with pictures of the saints and the Passion of Christ, Nicole Myshak begins the Angelus, an ancient prayer better known to her grandmother's generation. "The angel of the Lord declared unto Mary," the 24-year-old intones. "And she conceived of the Holy Spirit," respond classmates and teachers who fill the college chapel. The prayer is followed by a solemn Mass, a daily high point at Ave Maria College, one of a small but growing number of liberal arts colleges that promote traditional Roman Catholicism.

IMMOKALEE, Fla. - On pool-table-flat farmland where peppers, tomatoes and sod have been grown, Thomas S. Monaghan, 65 and one-time fast-food magnate, is pursuing what might be the last phase of his life's work: the saving of souls. "My No. 1 priority now is to help as many people get to heaven as possible," said the founder of Domino's Pizza and former owner of the Detroit Tigers. "I believe the best way to do that is education." The result, if Monaghan's vision and an artist's conceptions are translated into reality, will be the first new Roman Catholic university in the United States in a generation, built from scratch on what is now rich agricultural land near the Everglades of southwestern Florida.

Last Tuesday marked the 100th anniversary of Aaron Copland's birth, an occasion that should have been marked by a national celebration of some sort. The Concert Artists of Baltimore did its part to honor the composer locally -- and help people forget about chads for a little while -- by devoting half of its program Sunday evening at the College of Notre Dame to Copland, and making every note count. Artistic director Edward Polochick led the instrumental portion of this orchestral/choral organization in a remarkably affectionate and affecting account of Copland's most beloved work, the suite from the 1945 ballet "Appalachian Spring."

Sunday's musical splendors, for me, started with the Baltimore Choral Arts Society's season finale in the afternoon at Grace United Methodist Church. The cleverly constructed program gave audiences a chance to compare different settings of the same texts. Tom Hall, longtime artistic director of the chorus, chose a good number of pieces with spiritual texts, mixing in a little Shakespeare along the way. The composers represented were decidedly tonal in orientation, and several shared a rather generic style (I would have loved at least one walk on the wild side)

As the year draws to a close, the classical record industry is again adorned with long faces. It's been another dreadful year for classical sales, which is a pity because there were some fabulous recordings available. Anyone thinking about giving the gift of music this Christmas season should consider the following:* "The Heifetz Collection" (RCA/BMG 09026 61778-2): A 65-CD set, grouped in 46 volumes, that contains every commercial recording ever made by Jascha Heifetz, the greatest violinist who ever lived.

Sempre Libera - the second solo disc in a seven-year contract with the Deutsche Grammophon label - finds Anna Netrebko digging impressively into a substantial portion of the Italian repertoire, with particular emphasis on the bel canto genre she has claimed as her own. In the mad scene from Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor, this exceptional Russian soprano negotiates coloratura with confidence and a firm understanding of its emotional import. The result conveys the heat of a night in the theater, not to mention the particular qualities of tone, taste and temperament that have marked Netrebko for stardom.
