Pre-orders are rolling in for the Peterborough Singers' new CD, which offers a selection of the very best songs and carols from the choir's annual holiday concert. Yuletide Cheer Live! includes seasonal fare from Bach to Ballantine. All tracks are captured live, so they convey the intensity and emotions of performance.
Musical variety is paramount as well. There are a cappella pieces, such as Lauridsen's stunning "O Nata Lux"; works with grand organ accompaniments, such as Paul Halley's arrangement of "What Child Is This?"; and percussive and jazzy masterpieces by the likes of Karl Jenkins and Bob Chilcott.
The CD sells for $20, but, if you are looking for stocking stuffers, you can buy 3 for $50.
