At the end of 2021 we launched a brand new Christmas collection of New Zealand Choral Music. In the midst of the pandemic, six New Zealand composers (five are represented here) were commissioned by Voices New Zealand and Artistic Director, Karen Grylls, to reimagine familiar Christmas tunes.
The new works set old tunes, some with the atmosphere of centuries old traditions and some with the stories and traditions from New Zealand.
