Directed by Joan Gregoryk
Renowned and awarded Founder & Artistic Director Joan Gregoryk leads two parts of her Children's Chorus of Washington (DC), the mixed-voice, 9-17 years old singers of the Treble Chorus and Bel Canto Chorus in a live, accompanied collection of songs from their 2006-2007 Season of concert performances. There are 26 songs, well chosen for the high ranges of these young singers. Favorites are the traditional "Gaudete," Burt's "Caroling, Caroling," Walters' "The Cuckoo Carol," the Jewish Folk Song "Mi Ze Hidlik," the traditional tunes "Noel Nouvelet" and "O Christmas Tree," Wu's "Bethlehem Today," Debussy's "Noel des enfants," Thomas's "Walk in the Light," Bernstein's "Gloria Tibi from Mass," J.S. Bach's "Bist du bei mir," and "Wir eilen mit sprachen;" Brunner's "The World is Full of Poetry" and Copland's "Simple Gifts." A lovely, "feel good" collection from the talented Treble and Bel Canto Choruses of the Children's Chorus of Washington!
