Pro Arte Singers - Paul Hillier: Traditional & Modern Carols

This Is Jesus' Birthday
Give good gifts to one another
Remember, O thou man
Ecce, quod natura
As I out rode this enderes night (Coventry Shepherds' Carol)
Lully, lulla, thow littel tyne child (Coventry Carol)
Nowell, nowell: Dieu vous garde
Swete was the song the Virgine soong
Arise, arise ye mortals all
Hail happy morn
I wonder as I wander
Jesus Christ the Apple Tree
The darkest midnight
To Bethlehem did they go
Joys Seven
I sing of a maiden
The Babe of Bethlehem
Hail the memorable morn
Sweetest music softly stealing
The Kentucky Wassail Song
To all the good children, a happy New Year

Directed by Paul Hillier

This CD is an assortment of Christmas songs from England and America from the fifteenth through the twentieth centuries. Many of the songs are American shape-note and Shaker hymns as well as Appalachian folk songs. Some of the more familiar tunes include the "Coventry Carol: Lully, lulla, thow little tyne child," "I wonder as I wander" by John Jacob Niles and Emily Poston's sweet version of "Jesus Christ the Apple Tree." These songs are all beautifully sung by the Pro Arte Singers with the University of Indiana Children's Chamber Choir, led by Paul Hillier. This is a wonderful recording of rarely heard gems.
