Historic Trinity Church on Copley Square in Boston is the setting for this program of choral music.  A generous amount of music from the Anglican tradition included, but what makes this recording distinctive is the inclusion of music from other traditions, including the spiritual There is a Balm in Gilead, the F. Melius Christiansen arrangement of Beautiful Saviour, and the only recording of the Victorian classic, "The Holy City" that we are aware of. A program of classic choral works from the 16th to the 20th century, from Byrd to Tavener, this recording also includes new settings of familiar texts, such as “This little light of mine” and “God so loved the World.” Boston’s Trinity Choir is a critically acclaimed ensemble that has been hailed as “one of North America’s treasures” by One of Boston's premier choirs, The Copley Singers draw from British and American traditions with both unusual and familiar arrangements of holiday favorites.
