Product Description

With yuletide expressions both traditional and contemporary, this CD from the Choir of Wellington Cathedral of St. Paul (Wellington, New Zealand) explores a vast musical landscape. Nestled sungly among perennial carol favorites are works by 20th-century British choral masters, luminous modern American classics, and recently composed works by New Zealand composers Andrew Baldwin and Geoffrey Cocker. Glorious cathedral acoustics complement solid foundations provided by organ (1877 T. C. Lewis enlarged to 81stops, 3,531pipes) and brass. Michael Fulcher directs the Choir; Richard Apperley plays most of the accompaniments; Thomas Gaynor, organ scholar, accompanies “Once in Royal David’s City.” The Choir’s previous recording, "From Darkness to Light" has received universally enthusiastic reviews and remains available
