This Christmas-inspired album on Decca Classics is a beautiful collection of compositions and arrangements for choir, piano and strings by Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo. It includes new arrangements of familiar Christmas carols to create a warm sense of home through soaring melodies and rich harmonies. Gjeilo himself describes his music as “a lyrical mix of improvisation and classical.”
