Madrigalia Live at Christmas

Roger Wilhelm, music director

Order at CDBaby!

What? Another Madrigalia Christmas recording? Our first holiday recording in 1996 featured music by American composers. The second, in 2000, focused on music for harp and voice. This year, in the process of deciding on a new CD, we discovered that over the past several years we have performed a lot of wonderful Christmas music that is rarely heard live or on recordings. So, we put together in a CD the best “live” recorded performances of our Christmas concerts - carol arrangements, motets, folk and popular tunes and even a P. D. Q. Bach piece thrown in!

The music of this recording features a variety of sonorities as well as Madrigalia’s signature a cappella style. Several pieces are arranged for piano four-hands as well as solo piano. There are also pieces that use harp and bell choir accompaniments. All selections on this CD were recorded live at St. Anne Church in Rochester, New York. Madrigalia hopes that it will be a festive holiday collection for families everywhere.
