Notes and Editorial Reviews

As the third installment of “A Seraphic Fire Christmas”, Candlelight Carols: Music for Chorus and Harp is a unique collaboration between the pure, crystalline harp and warm, resonant voices. + This remarkable recording evokes an angelic, wintry atmosphere within an intimate, candle-lit chapel. + With Candlelight Carols, Seraphic Fire masterfully interweaves original arrangements of traditional carols with modern masterpieces. + Seraphic Fire is regarded as one of the preeminent chamber ensembles in the United States. In 2012, two of their recordings, Brahms: Ein Deutsches Requiem and A Seraphic Fire Christmas, were nominated for GRAMMY® awards. + Seraphic Fire was the only choral group in North or South America to be nominated, and the Read more only classical ensemble in the world to receive nominations for two separate projects. + Led by Founder and Artistic Director Patrick Dupre´ Quigley, Seraphic Fire brings some of the finest singers and instrumentalists from around the country to perform repertoire ranging from Gregorian chant and Baroque masterpieces to newly commissioned works.
