Carols by Candlelight

Share |

This is JAV’s newest choral CD from the famous Riverside Church in New York. The repertoire is a mix of music representing various musical cultures, something very reflective of Riverside’s music program. Director of Music Tim Smith skillfully conducts the choir in works by Mathias, Bairstow, Rutter, Willan, Victoria and many others. Organ accompaniments and the Craig Phillips organ Toccata on Joy to the World are played with great panache by Associate Music Director and Organist Christopher Johnson.
