Star

The Stellenbosch University Choir from South Africa is one of my favourites- their Christmas themed recording “Somerkersfees” released in 2014 contains this Bob Chilcott’s beautifully restrained arrangement of the spiritual, ‘Behold the Star’.

Morning

My favourite part of this advent musical tour is that even after five years, I still come across carols and Christmas songs that are new to me. One in this year’s lineup is “Brightest and Best” a Christmas hymn written by British composer Reginald Heber in 1811. This lively version, sung by the USC Thorton Chamber Singers, is arranged by Shawn Kirchner.
