About the album

This is a Christmas album that has a sense of place, clearly identifying the Chorale as both American and from a border state with Mexico, and something for everyone whether they prefer serious or light festive fare. There is Hispanic influence in the repertoire choices, which include Catalan folksongs as well as Hispanic Renaissance music. It includes a commission by Cecilia McDowall, written for Christmas 2021, and also some contemporary Christmas favourites such as Sleigh Ride and Jingle Bells. This marks the Chorale's return to recording following an 8-year hiatus, and we are excited to begin this new relationship with Signum!
