The songs on Sing of Noel capture the meaning of Christmas - a time to celebrate and rejoice in the beauty of the Earth, a time to reflect, and a time to give. We dedicate Sing of Noel to American veterans and active-duty members who have proudly served our nation, and to their families and friends who love and support them. In this spirit, a portion of the proceeds from Sing of Noel will benefit disabled veterans.
The title track on Sing of Noel was originally written in 1984 by Joseph M. Dague, a former Marine, Korean War Veteran and Purple Heart recipient. This song is a reflection on the despair that loomed over his mother during the time he was a prisoner of war, and on the hope for peace that his freedom inspired. In 2006, Joseph, together with his daughter Nova, rewrote "Sing of Noel" for Bella Sorella.
With music spanning over 300 years and seven languages, Bella Sorella's sound appeals to all music fans. Nova and Susanna were trained at the renowned New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, MA and are accompanied by acclaimed pianist Shinobu Kameyama from Japan. Nova and Susanna have been best friends since their first days in college and married brothers (hence the name Bella Sorella, or beautiful sister). Since joining Bella Sorella, Shinobu has become a dear friend, indeed a “sorella” to Nova and Susanna. The warmth and passion heard in their music clearly reflects their very special friendship.
