During the holidays, families and friends across Boston and around the world gather to enjoy the spirit of the season.  It is a time for reflection, celebration and, for many of us, music! Through carols, hyms, chants and zemirot, music brings people together. As part of our mission, we strive to use the power of music to build community every day, and so it is appropriate that this extend to the holiday season.  The Boston Children's Chorus looks forward to becoming a part of the holiday music traditions in the homes of our friends and families, through this recording!
