Christmas A Cappella II



This beautiful album from one of NZ's leading choirs is a sequel to the very successful “Christmas a cappella”, No 1 in the NZ classical charts in 2001.

This second programme of unaccompanied Christmas choral music is performed by one of New Zealand’s most successful choirs and includes a wide variety o pieces: some well known Chirstmas favourites; some familiar tunes in new arrangments; and some pieces that have not been recorded before. The music ranges from the sixteenth century to the present day, with composers from America, Germany, Austria, England, Ireland, France, Italy and New Zealand.
