Home For the Holidays (2001)




This CD includes a varied selection of Christmas and Holiday favourites ranging from carols like “Away in a Manger” to popular classics such as “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”. It features the Chamber Choir with Sheldon Rose Accompanist.

from Wholenote, Volume 8, #4:

This young choir…is as sweet voiced and meticulous as one could wish in this recording of many winter songs and a few Christmas ones. Their command of dynamics is admirable, and they are blessed in Sheldon Rose with an accompanist a bit above the average.
