Notes & Reviews:

Each Christmas season at Brigham Young University over 500 vocalists and instrumentalists celebrate the season in song. With a strong belief in the spiritual character of music, the BYU students and conductors have achieved performances that are alive, fresh, and heartfelt—performances that overcome boundaries and draw people together. The music on this CD was recorded during the live performances of the December 2013 "Celebration of Christmas" concerts. The BYU Singers, BYU Concert Choir, BYU Men’s Chorus, BYU Women’s Chorus, and BYU Philharmonic Orchestra inspire listeners with their spirit, talent, and performance artistry. These musical organizations are known for their unity, due in part to the superb technical proficiency achieved under choral conductors Ronald Staheli, Rosalind Hall and Jean Applonie as well as Philharmonic conductor Kory Katseanes. As one critic observed, “The spiritual element is present in each piece the choirs sing.”
