American composer Richard Toensing creates a musical synthesis of East and West with new settings of ancient Orthodox Christmas texts. The CD also includes twelve para-liturgical Orthodox Christmas Carols. Toensing's new Orthodox Carols for the Nativity of Christ alternate between exuberant celebration and joyful contemplation as they bridge the gap between Byzantine and American hymnody.


Artist: Cappella Romana

As Mary heard all of these astonishing words

What shall we call you?

Make glad you righteous
