Synopsis

Product Description
This splendid recording of 15 traditional Christmas songs and carols displays the impressive vocal talents of the members of the Northwest Boychoir and the young men and women of Vocalpoint! Seattle. Released in 1994, this is the third holiday album recorded and produced under the direction of Joseph Crnko with Nathaniel Papadakis. With this album, the choirs have worked to recreate the splendor and magic of their annual Festival of Lessons & Carols presentations. To capture the distinct quality of the boychoir sound, the choirs recorded on location at West Seattle's beautiful Holy Rosary Church. Every effort was taken to retain the breathtaking resonance of Holy Rosary. To add to the beauty of this recording, the choirs are accompanied by musicians from Seattle's leading orchestras and chamber groups. The result is a rich, vibrant recording that fully reveals the talents of these ensembles.

CD Reviews

An allumni's review

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I was a part of this CD and I can tell you without hesitating that this orginization is extremely professional, educational and musically proficient. Joe (director) is a musical Remberant; the majority of the music on this CD is music he arranged. Some of the most beneficial experiences in my early life are associated with the NW Boys choir. Your purchase will be well-invested should you choose to buy this CD. We worked hard on it, and the overall result is spectacular.

"This CD is absolutely amazing, I don't know much about the technical things, but the absolute musical clarity is awesome. It includes 15 traditional Christmas masterpieces including an astounding version of carol of the bells. In my opinion, it's a must have for holiday buying; a group this talented really deserves to be in the music collection of every Christmas fanatic like myself. Go ahead... buy it... you know you want to ;)"
