Holidays a cappella 1997

December 1997

Fresh arrangements of familiar carols combine with new works for a dazzling holiday concert.  Immerse yourself in the lush What Sweeter Music by Wayland Rogers, and Peter Saltzman's new arrangement of Mi Y'Malel for Hanukkah.  Two world premieres will also grace the program: The Lord is My Keeper (Psalm 121) by Rami Levin and Children's Christmas by Glenn Meade.  Then journey to India for the Winter raga, brilliantly arranged by Vanraj Bhatia, and back for The Huron Carol, the first carol composed in the New World. Spirituals and doo-wop carols round out the program--all performed with Chicago a cappella's exquisite tuning and expressive flair.
