Notes & Reviews:

This disc is sure to delight those who love the sounds of Christmas and are looking for artful arrangements that enhance the familiar with innovative quality. The ensemble's performance creates a balance and sonority rarely found in a combined choir and orchestra. ClassicsToday.com has written, "The choir is very good, singing with joy and enthusiasm and well-rehearsed ensemble technique."

The highly respected Utah Chamber Artists choir and orchestra and their Artistic Director/Composer/Arranger Dr. Barlow Bradford present Joyous Day - which parlays classic Christmas jewels into arrangements for choir and orchestra that are lavish and ornate but will present convincing affirmation of the true meaning of the Holiday Season. The Utah Chamber Artists, established in 1991 can claim appearances on NPR's The First Art, Music and the Spoken Word the weekly broadcast with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra, and the Israel Chamber Orchestra and have sung on various occasions with the Utah Chamber Orchestra.
