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 of inspirational. 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!
