Editorial Reviews

"A model of choral virtue." - The New York Times

 The striking array of works conducted by Judith Clurman on this - New World's first Christmas recording - opens a window onto the many facets of a contemporary American Christmas. Most of these compositions were first performed at one of the annual Christmas-tree-lighting ceremonies at Lincoln Center, where Clurman has directed music-making since 1992, and many were commissioned for those events. 

The carols and anthems of Christmas can be American or European, brand new or very old, and the works on this recording pay tribute to this eclectic ancestry, albeit in very different ways. Some, such as Wayne Oquin's Ave Maria or Ned Rorem's While All Things Were in Quiet Silence, have texts drawn from church liturgy and music with clear historic precedents in anthems and motets of the European tradition. Others focus on the holiday's secular mythology, whether the joy of caroling with friends, as in Joan Morris and William Bolcom's Carol: Neighbors on this Frosty Tide, or human decency, as in Jennifer Higdon's Deep in the Night.

A more satisfying program of Christmas music - ecumenical and brimming with the joy and hope of the season - will be hard to find.

Format: Audio CD
Judith Clurman knows how to work with singers, and the sound of her chorus is sumptuous on this CD. Just what you might want to have playing as the family is gathering for the holidays. And in a time of questioning and re-examination of what makes us Americans, the fact that this CD represents a wide variety of American composers doing their best to connect to beloved traditions makes this CD a winner. Hats off to New World for making a CD the record companies never would have...
