On Friday night, the Catskill Chamber Singers held their Holiday 2007 concert, Songs of the Season: The World Around. Leah is a member of this 16-person ensemble, so I am at most of their concerts. The holiday concerts are always my favorites. Friday’s show featured Moses Hogan’s Glory, Glory to the Newborn King as the penultimate piece, with Leah’s soaring soprano taking the solo part. I always love hearing Leah sing, as do many others, and this was no exception. (To hear the live recording I made of the song, just click on the name above. The file is in mp3 format.)
The Chamber Singers are rather fond of sing-alongs, which can be a bit odd when they are singing “recent” pop songs written before my parents were born, but at the holiday shows, I am always quite familiar with the songs. The concert closed with all assembled singing Silent Night, the perfect compliment to the season.
