Lo, there is light CD


Lo, there is light! Christmas choral music from around the world

Some melodies are irrevocably linked to Christmas -- try humming 'Away in a Manger' in June and soon enough someone will exclaim about Christmas being months away. All the pieces on this CD describe aspects of the Christmas story -- angels singing, shepherds with their flocks, Mary and her baby Jesus -- as told by different cultures in different ages. The lyrics tell a 2000-year-old-story that has been elaborated on, imagined and poetically described.
