This recording is only available as a digital download from iTunes or CD Baby and on streaming services.

A Ceremony of Carols by Benjamin Britten – surely the most famous piece ever written for choir and harp – is a series of musical gems that is exuberant, innocent, and moving. Concierto di Navidad by Paul Csonka features Spanish sensuousness and catchy Cuban rhythms. In Dancing Day, John Rutter retells the central event of Christmas simply and vividly in a tapestry of dance tunes.

with Rita Costanzi, harp
