A Christmas Garland is a 2 CD gift set with beloved Christmas carols and beautifully arranged brass selections. Sing Noel with Gloriæ Dei Cantores is a Christmas treat from beginning to end. From Caroling, Caroling to My Dancing Day and The Holly and the Ivy — this recording brings you traditional Christmas music that will brighten your day and warm your heart.
Nothing heralds the majesty of Christmastime like the brilliance and beauty of brass! Christmas in Brass presents a collection of music by masters of brass including Rolf Smedvig, Anthony DiLorenzo, and more. From the overflow of joy in J.S.Bach's Wie will ich mich freuen, to the cinematic soundscape of DiLorenzo's A King's Journey, to the rosy-cheeked romp of Leroy Andersen's Sleigh Ride, each piece adds new luster to your celebration of this glorious season.
