Côr Cadeirlan Bangor Cathedral Choir

A Babe is Born: Music for Advent, Christmas & Epiphany - WHR046This is the début recording of the mixed choir of Bangor Cathedral, under the direction of J. Paul Booth.  A Babe is Born: Music for Advent, Christmas & Epiphany brings together some popular carols (some sung in Welsh) with some lesser known items, including the world première recording of Ian Higginson's exquisite Balulalow, written for the choir in 2014.  With sensitive organ playing from Martin J. Brown, this album is the perfect accompaniment to your Christmas celebrations.
