The Traditions of Christmas
Copyright © 2016 St. Joseph's Media
The girls’ choir of Saint Dominic Chapel, located in Highland, Michigan, has
recorded twenty traditional hymns and carols, including both Gregorian and
polyphonic favorites, presented in a professional package that is nothing short
This is truly a unique choir with a unique sound. The angelic purity of the girls’
voices combined with the elegant simplicity of the arrangements lifts one’s
heart and mind and fills the soul with joy and peace. Devoid of any pretense or
overproduced electronic enhancements, the harmonious blend of these
innocent voices brings the sacred music of the Christmas season to life. While
listening to the meditative strains of these classic Christmas carols and hymns,
one is transported to the pew at midnight Mass on a snowy Christmas Eve.
The Saint Dominic Chapel Girls’ Choir, now in its fifth year, consists of young
ladies of the parish ranging in age from nine to eighteen who are trained and
directed by the Dominican Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Ever
mindful that “to sing is to pray,” the girls endeavor to put their whole heart and
soul into their song for the sole intention of praising and glorifying God in the
sacred Liturgy of the Catholic Church. Their devoted love of the sacred music
and enthusiasm for its precise performance has enabled these girls to develop a
glorious repertoire of traditional Catholic music.
Whether purchased for oneself or as a gift, this beautiful and professional CD
will bring delight to all listeners for years to come. Included with the CD is a
high-quality booklet with English translations of all the songs and informative,
historical background information on each piece.
Here’s what CDbaby has to say about it: “With the vocal purity of the angels,
these young ladies will warm your heart and lift your spirits with their
harmonious performance of classic Christmas carols and hymns.”
You have to hear it to believe it.
These young ladies are good!
They really do sing with the
vocal purity of the angels. It's
hard to believe they are
amateurs. If you like classic,
traditional carols and hymns of
the beautiful Christmas Season
you will LOVE this CD. Check
out "The Angel Gabriel" and
"Silens Nox" (Silent Night) and
"Once in Royal David's City"
not to mention the meditative
Gregorian pieces. This is a
keepsake and a real treasure. I
highly recommend it
Positively angelic. There is
nothing sweeter than the sound
of children's voices singing
religious music on Christmas,
in my opinion. This CD makes
you want to cuddle up in front
of the fireplace with your loved
ones and a hot cup of cocoa.
Perfect background music for
holiday festivities, as well.
The Traditions of Christmas by
the Saint Dominic Girls' Choir
is my new favorite Christmas
CD. Christmastide is a special
time for music and this music
is definitely special. You can
hear the love and devotion in
the purity of their sound. The
choice of selections is perfect-
some acappella, some with
organ accompaniment; some
beautifully harmonized, others
in sweet, strong unison. There
are old favorites as well as
little heard Gregorian chants. I
hope this will be their first
recording of many!
