This is a thrilling recording that combines one of the largest pipe organs in New York City with a fine choir, singing Christmas Carols. The repertoire is a mix of music representing various musical cultures, something very reflective of the Riverside Church’s music program. Director of Music, Timothy Smith, skillfully conducts the choir in works by Mathias, Bairstow, Rutter, Willan, Victoria and many others. Organ accompaniments and the Craig Phillips organ “Toccata on Joy to the World” are played with great panache by Associate Music Director and Organist, Christopher Johnson. This recording comes with extensive documentation: notes on the music, stoplist and numerous photos.
