CAMERATA NOVA LIVE VOL. 1 – CHRISTMAS IN EARLY AMERICA CD

At the suggestion of many of our fans, we have issued Camerata Nova Live: Christmas in Early America, a CD of our highly popular holiday concert of 2012, which was recorded by CBC Radio 2. This album contains early and contemporary American music, ranging from late 18th-century shape-note songs to very recent arrangements of Christmas carols.
