The First Nowell - Christmas Carols Through the Ages

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 5-7 working days
The Christmas carol has its origins in the Middle Ages but it has since embraced a wide variety of musical backgrounds. In this album, religious sentiment is set in many different contexts – from the mystery plays to an African American spiritual, from its origins in Gregorian Chant and 16th-century secular dance to traditional examples rooted in poetry. Some of the most famous and beautiful examples are heard alongside energising contemporary carols to present a tapestry of the genre across the centuries. Canadian chamber choir The Edison Singers was founded in 2019 by Dr Noel Edison, and under his direction has quickly become known for its rich, warm sound, versatility, dexterity and clarity of texture. Annual auditions are held for current and aspiring choristers, which ensures the preservation and integrity of this trademark sound. The ensemble has been praised as one of the finest chamber choirs in Canada making significant contribution to the musical life of local communities. The Edison Singers is committed to presenting Canadian repertoire and collaborating with other artists from across Canada and around the world.
