Album Notes
The sounds on this landmark Publick Musick recording are nothing short of ethereal. Recorded in 2002 at St. Mary's Church, in Cortland, New York, this music resonates through the beautiful cathedral space. When you hear these choral and instrumental works of Gabrieli, Marini, Cavalli, Castello, Merulo and Monteverdi, you will be transported to a 17th Century European Christmas service. Says Ben Ohmart of the Muses Muse:

?It?s always lovely getting a Christmas CD well ahead of time ? that?s how most of them come. As the colors of autumn begin to twirl and change and fall, the hope that a wondrous choral album like Aural Borealis creates is a chillingly peaceful ebb of gorgeous classical sounds that even the most idiotic of minds, like myself, cannot help but smile upon.

Recorded in St. Mary?s Church in Cortland, New York, the sound is more superb than one would think comes from a church. But this church has a studio sound, filled with rather flawless playing, chamber work that one would expect more from a Naxos catalog than an ? indie release.

The tracks shine in the Baroque tradition. And Christmas will come every time light hits the grooves. You won?t be disappointed with it.?

Publick Musick is an award-winning orchestra and choir whose passion is performing the masterworks of the Baroque Era. Founded in 1995, the ensemble is based in Rochester, New York and appears regularly throughout the Northeast. The ensemble is comprised of musicians from a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences but who share a love and desire to perform their core repertoire with attention to performance practice and on period instruments.

Publick Musick has appeared in festivals and at colleges and universities throughout the country. It is the only fully professional chamber orchestra and choir located in Upstate New York and draws its musicians primarily from the Northeast corridor cities of New York City, Chicago, and Boston. Many of the musicians also enjoy careers as soloists, ensemble players, recording artists, and teachers.
