Inspired by her love of spirituals and traditional carols, Marie-Josée Lord embarks on a mystical journey for her very first Christmas album. Accompanied by the Ensemble Vocal Épiphanie, Lord sings such beloved gospel songs as Amazing Grace and Couldn’t Hear Nobody Pray. Accompanied by Jean-Willy Kunz at the organ of the Saint-Jean- Baptiste church, Montréal and by violinist Antoine Bareil, Marie-Josée Lord also sings Christmas season classics including Ave Maria by Bach/Gounod and Minuit, Chrétiens! by Adolphe Adam, as well as Bing Crosby’s celebrated song White Christmas. Marie-Josée Lord’s first disc, the eponymous Marie-Josée Lord (2011 Felix award for best classical vocal recording of the year), as well as her most recent ATMA disc, Yo soy Maria, won over the hearts of the public.
