Birth and Rebirth, an extraordinary release into the world of religious music, is performed by Colindãtorii, a group of eleven professional American singers from the Choral Arts Society of Washington, DC. This recording is a singularly unique exhibition of Romanian Christmas and Easter music.
What Colindãtorii shares with the Romanian community is a love of the subtleties and poetic qualities of Romanian music; something that shines through on every track. It is a love that is sure to spread to many communities.
There are few recordings that have so completely captured the essence of Romanian religious holiday music, and that so clearly manifest the terrain of the Romanian soul. Birth and Rebirth is a milestone in the catalogue of sacred music.
100% of the proceeds from sales of Birth and Rebirth benefit a non-profit, private center for abandoned infants in Romania. Music director Larisa Lucaci-Vashee and her two daughters, Maya and Lina, volunteer their time each summer at this safe haven in Târgoviºte.

American parents of adopted Romanian children will love this recording, as a way to introduce their children to their own cultural legacy through the power of music.
