Wishes And Candles: American Christmas Music
Format: COMPACT DISC
Gameson, Paul; Dent, Rachel; Wright, Jane; Ebor Singers
The Ebor Singers, with director Paul Gameson, returns to the Resonus Classics label with an album of American Christmas music. The contemporary American Christmas choral tradition is a remarkable confluence of stylistic confluences, sacred and secular, which reflect the country’s cultural vibrancy more so than other times of year. Featuring works from composers including Morten Lauridsen, Eric Whitacre, Stephen Paulus, Susan LaBarr, Abbie Betinis, Timothy C. Takach, Jake Runestad, Matthew Culloton, René Clausen, Alfred Burt, Dan Forrest and Melinda Dunphy, the ensemble is joined by harpist Rachel Dent and oboist Jane Wright.
