CD - Christmas Music in the Holy Land Recorded in Jerusalem and Bethlehem

Track Listing:

WESTERN CHURCHES

Bells of the Lutheran Church of the Redeemer. The Church is in the Muristan area of the Old City of Jerusalem, close to the Holy Sepulchre.

Good Christian Men Rejoice (Mixed choirs in St. Georg's Cathedral, Jerusalem, seat of the Anglican Archbishop.)

Noel Nouvelet (sung by the nuns of the Convent of the Sisters of Sion)

Christmas Lullaby (in Arabic) (The full choir of the Adele Dafeesh school for blind girls)

Jesus Is All the World to Me (The soloist is Loucend Kouyounian, an American girl, pupil of this Bethlehem blind girls' school)

Un Petit Enfant Nous Est Ne Unto Us a Little Child is Born) (Sung by the Nuns of the Convent of the Sisters of Sion)

Organ Voluntary (from the Chapel of the Sisters of Sion)

The Midnight Mass at Bethlehem (in St Catherine's Basilica, adjoining the Church of the Nativity)

EASTERN CHURCHES

Bells of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Jerusalem. These bells serve always as a reminder that Western ceremonies are but one aspect of Christmas in the Holy Land. Most of the Orthodox Churches, including the Greeks -- custodians of many shrines -- celebrate it on January 6.

Come Ye Faithful (Choir of priests and boys of the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate, Jerusalem)

The Gospel Story. For many Arab Christians among Greek Orthodox congregations, the liturgy is, of course, in Arabic. From St. George's Church, Bethlehem.)

Christmas Hymn (Mixed choir of the Russian Orthodox Church of St. Mary Magdalene, Gethsemane)

The Holy Family. Part of the Grande Doxologie. Priests of the White Fathers' Seminary, at St. Anne's Crusader Church, by the Pool of Bethesda. They are Greek Catholics, but follow the Orthodox liturgy.

Holy, Holy, God Almighty. From the Christmas Mass, sung by the Coptic Patriarchate Choir, Jerusalem. In the indigenous churches of the Middle East, ritual and liturgy have changed but little from the early centuries of Christianity.

Bells of the Russian Convent on the Mount of Olives. The convent's gothic belltower dominates the skyline on top of the Mount, near the Place of the Ascension. The bells are rung by the nuns.

A Christian Hymn (Sung in Old Slavonic by the Buns of the Russian Convent.

The Gospel. in Syriac (Peshitta Translation). Choir of the Syrian Church of St. Mark, in Jerusalem. Syriac is akin to Aramaic, the language of Jesus and the Disciples.

Saviour of the World, Born Today (Monks of the Deir el Habashi, the Abyssinian Monastery, in Jerusalem. Their small, African-type huts nestle in close to the Holy Sepulchre. Their music, too, in its rhythm, reveals its African origin. Their sixth-century chant is in Gheez, classical language of the ancient kingdom of Ethiopia.

The Magnificat and Today Is Christmas. Combined choirs of the 12th-century Armenian Cathedral of St. James and the Armenian Semniary. Thechurch stands on the site where, according to tradition, Herod Agrippa "killed James, the brother of John, with the sword." St. James's preserves the splendor of Byzantium; incense, silver lamps suspended from the soaring dome, rich carpets covering the glagstones. The Aremenians in Jerusalem celebrate Christmas last of all, on January 18.

What Am I Buying?

What Am I Buying?

We have purchased a number of copies of all the records we sell.  We have created CDs and MP3s of excellent quality using multiple recordings from the records we've purchased.  You will find the quality of our CDs to be superb.  In order to abide by copyright laws, we offer for sale records with the CDs and MP3s for our customers who do not already own the vinyl lps.  If you, like me, have held on to your records, you need only buy the CDs.  You already have a copyright obtained when you bought the records; therefore, copyright laws allow you to have a transfer copy of the original recording your purchased. 

All our CDs are printed directly - no labels - and include the song listing, artist/release name, and a thumbnail image of the front album artwork. CDs are packaged in plastic jewel case boxes. Our jewel cases include the front album artwork on the front and the song listing on the back. We do not include the back album artwork as we have found many album jackets contain a lot of text on the back which does not reduce down from the 12" album jacket to the 5" CD insert satisfactorily. The artist and release name are printed on the side spine.

Because we sell the vinyl records only to provide you a legal copyright and thus the legal right to own the transfer copy CD, we make no claims as to the quality or condition of the vinyl records you may receive.  The records you purchase may or may not have been used to create your CDs.   The sound quality of your CDs will be highly superior to the vinyl record you receive if you purchase lps. We give you the option to purchase a vinyl record (if we have them in stock) in the purchase options below the Song Listing of each item.

MP3 downloads are also available for many of our releases.  As with the CDs, you must own the record to purchase an MP3 download.  If you purchase the download, you will not receive a CD.  Of course, if you prefer to purchase the MP3 download to a CD, but you do not own the records, we are happy to sell you the records along with your download.
