Description:  A delightful selection of hymns and carols for the Feast of the Nativity of Christ (also encompassing the pre-festal period). This CD offers a variety of compositions and chant arrangements by some of North America's leading composers and arrangers, both living and recently deceased. The repertoire draws upon various traditions of styles of Orthodox church music, particularly as they are manifest in the practice of parishes in North America. Like their other releases, With the Voice of the Archangel and Resurrection!, this CD was recorded in the rich acoustics of SS Peter and Paul Church in Meriden, Connecticut, by a group of 12 fine professional-level voices.
