Celebrate the holidays all year round with the 3rd volume in Quire Cleveland’s series of Carols for Quire from the Old & New Worlds. By popular demand, we’ve issued the splendid 2013 concert, where British and American Christmas music from the past 100 years met its match with settings from earlier centuries. Hear “Silent Night” (1818) paired with “In the bleak midwinter” (1906), and 3 settings of “A spotless rose” from the 17th, 20th, and 21st centuries.

Quire’s artistic director Ross W. Duffin has made beautiful and moving arrangements of many of the early settings, to highlight the glorious voices and acclaimed musicality of Quire Cleveland. You’ll be inspired and delighted by the works of such composers as Benjamin Britten, Eric Whitacre, Thomas Tallis, Ralph Vaughan Williams, John Tavener, and Tom Lehrer.

It’s available in this CD by Quire Cleveland, recorded live in concert. Celebrate the holidays with Carols for Quire from the Old & New Worlds!
