Philomela Female Choir: Midnight Christmas

The earth is beautiful
Hail to Thee, most blessed
The snowy cottages sleep
A prayer for Christmas night
The Christmas bells
Silence
On Christmas Night
God whispers Christmas
Mary, most lowly of maidens
The sauna seeker
Breathe, my good horse
For God was born
Jesus rocked in a cradle
Cast care aside
Silent night, holy night
Song of Mary

Directed by Marjukka Riihimaki

Renowned for its versatility, Philomela has, ever since it was formed in 1984, adopted an innovative approach to choral expression under its conductor Marjukka Riihimaki. Its many awards have included the Grand Prix in the Chorus Review of Tampere Vocal Music Festival, and in recent years it has regularly been invited to sing at international festivals. Recently Philomela decided to explore the potential for adding new songs to the Finnish stock of Christmas carols without violating the traditional Christmas spirit. It therefore commissioned songs on the Christmas theme from composers it had worked with before and were familiar with Philomela's style. They also included some more traditional Finnish Christmas music as well and this resulting recording is a true a cappella pleasure.
