Cappella SF Christmas - Light of Gold
Internationally renowned Grammy award winning conductor Ragnar Bohlin conducts his professional choir Cappella SF presents a marvelous holiday program, with music spanning more than a millennium. There is something for everybody, with the beloved traditional seasonal standards in striking arrangements and delightful original compositions and arrangements from the top-tier English and American composers, as well as leading choral masters from Bohlin’s native country of Sweden – including a piece written for him by Fredrik Sixten, heard here in a world premiere recording.
“Cappella SF’s Light of Gold mixes new and old, with a couple of well-known Willcocks arrangements of traditional carols alongside a Swedish sequence from the likes of Fredrik Sixten, Folke Bohlin and Gustaf Nordqvist. These are well-drilled performances, the better-known works beautifully shaped and the newer music modern without being rebarative. Ward Swingle’s truly imaginative arrangement of Gaudete and David Conte’s onomatopoeic Patapan are special moments.” David Threasher, Gramophone Magazine
