Wonder Of Christmas

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 5-7 working days
The Elora Festival Singers, conducted by internationally acclaimed director Noel Edison, is one of the most exciting of contemporary choirs. Their disc of Eric Whitacre's choral music (8.559677) was nominated for a GRAMMY® in 2010. Now they turn to the art of the Christmas carol, a genre covering a variety of styles, both popular and refined, each piece expressing religious sentiments and beliefs.

The music ranges from much-loved settings to new works, from polyphony to more straightforward melodies, in a recital stretching from the Middle Ages to the music of today.

This much admired choir and director have been lavishly praised for their previous Naxos discs. 'Choral enthusiasts, arise! Here is a new recording that you can really get excited about.' - ClassicsToday 10/10, of the album 'Psalms of the Soul' [8554823]. This latest disc celebrates the art of the Christmas Carol, from the Middle Ages to the music of today, not least in the settings by John Tavener and the ever-popular John Rutter. This is the perfect Christmas offering.
