Southern California Children's Chorus : Simple Gifts (Holiday Concert) : 00  1 CD : Lori Loftus : 

Southern California Children's Chorus : Simple Gifts (Holiday Concert)

Review: The SCCC, founded by artistic director Lori Loftus, involves 200 choristers in a sequential choral program consisting of 6 choirs. The 65 mixed-voice Concert Chorus, under Lori's leadership, is rapidly becoming the leading children's chorus in Southern California. 21 songs, the first 11, all arranged by Lori, are religious and sacred music, with the exception of the traditional title tune, arranged by Aaron Copeland. Banchieri's "Jubilate Deo," Praetorius' "Sing dem Herrn," Handel's "Art Thou Troubled," Zoltan Kodaly's "Psalm 150," James McCray's "Kyrie," and Rene Clausen's joyous "Psalm 100" are favorites in this group. The traditional Hebrew song "S'Vivon," the upbeat folk tune "Niska Banja," Leonard Bernstein's "One Hand, One Heart," Walter Hawkins' "I'm Goin' Up a Yonder," the spiritual "Go Where I Send Thee!," and the traditional "May the Road Rise Up to Meet You" are other favorites. Piano accompaniment on some songs. Excellent song selection and the spirited harmonies of talented youthful choristers-"Simple" is truly a gift!

Songlist: The Joy of Bells: Din Don! Merrily on High, All Ye Who Music Love, Petite Mass: Gloria, Carol of the Bells, Cum Sancto Spiritu, O Little Town of Bethlehem, Hiney Mah Tov, Dravidian Dithyramb, My Shepherd Will Supply My Needs, Patapan, We Wish You a Merry Christmas, The Lord Bless You and Keep You, Must Be Santa, Kindle the Hanukkah Lights, Parents, White Christmas
