Notes & Reviews:

Navona Records is delighted to present DASHING, a festive album for the holiday season featuring brand new works and arrangements of holiday favorites by several outstanding composers, with performances by The Stanbery Singers, the Moravian Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Salt Lake City Jazz Orchestra. Familiar faces and tunes make appearances here, such as Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's perennial holiday favorite, Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy from his ballet The Nutcracker. Henry Wolking provides a jazz arrangement of God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen; likewise, David Tanner contributes with an arrangement of O Holy Night. Composer Christopher J. Hoh has produced choral commissions for The Stuttgart German-American Chorus, and California's Meistersingers. In addition to several current composition projects, he is also editing neglected works from the European Renaissance and America for performance. L Peter Deutsch composes primarily for small instrumental or a capella vocal ensembles, known for his modal harmonies, fluent text setting, and lyrical melodies. His work to date includes three choral commissions ("Brethren and Lovers," San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus, 2008, "The Dimensions of Love," Bay Choral Guild, 2011, and "Where Everything is Music," Arizona Women in Tune, 2012).
