Notes and Editorial Reviews

Soprano Suzie LeBlanc returns to her roots with La Veillée de Noël, a recording of traditional songs from the collection Rondes et Chansons populaires illustrées published in Paris in the late 1890s. “My cousin, from Memramcook, New Brunswick rescued an old book of songs that contains some beautiful, lesser-known Christmas carols which immediately appealed to me,” says LeBlanc. LeBlanc is accompanied by veteranmusicians and long-time collaborators violinist David Greenberg, percussionist Nick Halley, and harpsichordist Alexander Weimann.
