An American Christmas

An American Christmas is a CD of particularly American hymns and spirituals (1770-1870) suitable for the season. Joel Cohen directs The Boston Camerata. I love this as a change from the usual "winter wonderland" popular music and versions of Christmas carols, and yet it's not like the older Medieval/Renaissance music we also have some of. Variety is the spice of life, so this is "spicey" for us.

You can listen to some of it at the page.

    I agree with your observation about variety. This is a really nice collection.
