Hear selections from new releases with our weekly Choral Featured Album Fridays at 11 a.m. central on the Choral Stream.
This week on the Choral Featured Album, we present Star of Wonder, the new release from Chor Leoni. Comprising 11 tracks, the album takes the listener on a journey through a range of Christmas works, including Silent Night, The First Noel, and more. Read more about the album below (from the Chor Leoni website):
From Franz Biebl's soaring Ave Maria, to Tori Amos' driving Star of Wonder and Erick Lichte's iconic arrangement of Silent Night as sung in their performances of All is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914, this collection explores the many moods and sounds of the season. Rich and lush, this latest release from Canada's premiere male choir features a mix of a cappella singing alongside works accompanied by piano, piano four-hands, and hammered dulcimer. Star of Wonder is a must for any lover of men's choral music and would be the perfect soundtrack to any festive feast.
