This fine recording is a beautiful celebration of the Christmas season with an international flair. Conductor Robert de Cormier has included a few of his own settings along with well-recognized works and carol arrangements. Stellar instrumentalists accompany the accomplished singers of "Counterpoint" to produce a recording that will be on your listening list year after year. A complete reading of Conrad Susa's Carols and Lullabies is a highlight of the recording. Titles: Navidad Nuestra (Ramirez); Ritsch, Ratsch, Filibom! (arr. de Cormier); Away in a Manger (arr. de Cormier); The Song of the Women (Britten); The Souling Song (arr. de Cormier); Carols and Lullabies (Susa); La Trulla(arr. de Cormier); and Betelehemu (Brooks).
