Christmas with the Grace Cathedral Choir of Men and Boys
Benjamin Bachmann, organ
Jeffrey Smith, director

Produced on the Pro Organo label, America’s premiere brand for organ and choral excellence, this CD was recorded in Grace Cathedral in January 2007. It features American Christmas carols and American versions of traditional Christmas Carols. The cathedral choir and soloists are accompanied by the 1934 Aeolian-Skinner organ, percussion, piano, and string bass. Among the unusual highlights:

  • Swingin’ version of “Go tell it on the mountain” with Jazz trio
  • Premiere recording of several carols, among them the ultra-romantic “It came upon a midnight clear” by former cathedral musician Richard Purvis
  • Diverse mixture of the traditional and the innovative
  • High-definition digital sound, a vivid reflection of the cathedral’s acoustical ambience
