Christmas Music to feed the hungry
December 14th, 2008
many people know that the city of Princeton, NJ is one of the most gifted
cities in the world when it comes to choral music. It’s home to the
American Boychoir and the Princeton Girlchoir. It’s home to the Westminster
Choir and the Westminster Concert Bell Choir of Westminster Choir College.
Of course, it’s where the Princeton University Chapel Choir are. And
it’s home to a number of award-winning private and public high schools,
including the Stuart Country Day School, the Princeton Day School, and
the Princeton High School Choir.
This is the inaugural year for A Princeton Christmas: For The Children
Of Africa, a downloadable album with recordings from all these choirs.
In this age when “Christmas music” seems to mean nothing but “Feliz
Navidad” and Paul McCartney’s “Wonderful Christmastime” playing over
and over and over again, this CD will be a breath of fresh air, starting
with the stunningly beautiful performance of “The First Nowell” and
including heartwarming renditions of “It’s Christmastide” and the Princeton
Girlchoir’s cheerful rendition of “Let It Snow.”
100% of proceeds go to benefit the World Food Programme. Buying the
entire album will literally feed a hungry child for an entire month
through the WFP.

www.friendsofwfp.org), a non-profit organization dedicated to building
support for the WFP (http://www.wfp.org).
