Notes and Editorial Reviews

Contemporary Canadian carols, English luck-songs, Gregorian chant, cantiques traditionnels, German lullabies, sombre Russian motets. This contrasting array is a small sample of the vast spectrum of music sung throughout the Christian world to celebrate Christmas (Noël, Navidad, Jul, Weihnacht). Chor Leoni and their internationally known conductor, Diane Loomer, have searched the choral world for seasonal pieces for men's voices, some written especially for 'the lions', and tried to capture the style of these contrasting works from the corners of Christianity.
