Full of breathtaking beauty, Star of Wonder, Chor Leoni’s latest Christmas album captures the shimmer and shine which have made the choir’s annual holiday performances some of the most popular in British Columbia.
From Franz Biebl’s soaring Ave Maria, to Tori Amos’ driving Star of Wonder and Erick Lichte’s iconic arrangement of Silent Night as sung in their performances of All is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914, this collection explores the many moods and sounds of the season. Rich and lush, this latest release from Canada’s premiere male choir features a mix of a cappella singing alongside works accompanied by piano, piano four-hands, and hammered dulcimer. Star of Wonder is a must for any lover of men’s choral music and would be the perfect soundtrack to any festive feast.
