Christmas Spectacular

Artists:


John Wells, Nicholas Forbes, APO Brass and Percussion, Musica Sacra choir, and Indra Hughes



This recording balances a number of different elements, all with a Christmas theme: choral showcases for Musica Sacra; an organ solo by the City Organist and Musica Sacra Organist, John Wells; the splendour of the brass both by itself and in combination with the choir and organ; and a blend of familiar and new pieces from New Zealand and around the world. There is some ‘serious’ classical music as well as lighter, more popular fare: we think that there is something for everybody in this programme, and we hope that you enjoy it.
