Dr. Robert Copeland, director of The Genevans, selected beloved carols from England, France and Austria as well as Christmas hymns from Germany, Italy and the United States. These include John Jacob Niles's classic "I Wonder as I Wonder," a chorus from Camille Saint-Saëns's Christmas Oratorio, and Morton Lauridsen's stunning "O Nata Lux."
