Decorah, Iowa's Luther College can boast 7 choirs (and 8 bands and orchestras) among its nearly 1,000 student musicians, but none older or more famous than the Nordic Choir, founded in 1946. Directed by Weston Noble from 1948 to 2005, when Dr. Craig Arnold picked up the baton, the Choir won international acclaim as a premier collegiate choral group and a national choral treasure. "A New Hosanna" contains 17 Classical and Contemporary Christian songs, many with organ accompaniment. Some of our favorites are Alessandro Scarlatti's "Exsultate Deo," Jeffrey Van's "Child of Peace," Craig Courtney's "Carol of the Birds," Francis Poulenc's "Vinea mea electra," Hal N. Hopson's "Beneath the Cross of Jesus, founder of Luther's Music Program F. Melius Christiansen's "Glorification" (No. 4 from "Celestial Spring"), Healey Willan's "An Apostrophe to the Heavenly Hosts," Stephen Foster's classic folk song "Laura Lee," the spiritual "Ezekiel Saw the Wheel" and Gustof Nordqvist's "Wonderful Peace." An inspiring, finely-crafted collection from one of the oldest and finest American choirs!
