Reference Recordings is proud to present True Concord Voices & Orchestra's second album, Christmas With True Concord: Carols in the American Voice, recorded in outstanding fidelity, and produced by GRAMMY award winner Peter Rutenberg of Los Angeles.
Founded in 2004, Tucson, Arizona-based True Concord made its internationally-distributed debut album on Reference Recordings, Far in the Heavens: Choral Music of Stephen Paulus, for which it received a GRAMMY nomination for Best Choral Performance, and for which Stephen Paulus won posthumously the GRAMMY for Best Classical Contemporary Composition.
Eric Holtan, founder and conductor of True Concord states: “Every December, True Concord presents its popular Lessons and Carols by Candlelight concerts in the Tucson area. Unique in the local milieu of seasonal offerings, the focus is on sacred Christmas carols. Even in their simplest form, carols evoke emotionally powerful memories of personal and family experiences that enrich and enliven annual holiday celebrations. With this album, I wanted to capture the essence of our much-loved concerts with the mostly familiar carols presented here, but in musical settings by American composers that are new or not widely known. With the kind assistance of advisor Dale Warland — who set the standard of excellence with several cherished Christmas recordings over the years by The Dale Warland Singers — True Concord offers these holiday treasures, most of which are receiving their world premiere recordings. This is Christmas With True Concord: Carols in the American Voice."
