ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
„Christmas A Capella“ is the first release by Canadian opera singers Lucie Mayer and Kevin Armstrong. A varied and colourful recording, „Christmas A Capella“ offers a selection of well-loved traditional Christmas carols and songs in the „a capella“ fashion, with no instruments to accompany the rich and impressive voices of Mayer and Armstrong.

Lucie Mayer comes originally from Montréal, Québec. During her university music studies, she began her career as an early and sacred music specialist, appearing on numerous recordings with the Montreal Symphony Orchestra, Studio de Musique Ancienne de Montréal, and other Canadian groups. An opera career followed, after an impressive debut in the Vancouver Opera production of Wagner‘s „Flying Dutchman“. She has since performed with opera companies in Québec, Vermont, Switzerland, Austria and Germany. Most notably, Lucie was a featured soloist on the Grammy-award winning recording of „Les Troyens“, conducted by Charles Dutoit.

Kevin Armstrong was born in British Columbia, Canada. After studying classical guitar and singing in numerous choruses, he discovered the operatic voice inside him. He pursued his studies at McGill University, obtaining a B.Mus and M.Mus. and was a resident artist numerous times at the Banff Centre for the Arts. In 2002, Kevin moved to Zürich, Switzerland, where he was a member of the studio ensemble of Opernhaus Zürich. He has since performed at opera houses and festivals in Germany and Switzerland with such notable artists as Sir John Eliot Gardner, Nello Santi, Thomas Hampson, Jose Cura, Ruggiero Raimondi, Leo Nucci, Charles Dutoit and others.

Lucie and Kevin now direct their own opera company, „The Handheld Opera“ in Bremen, Germany. The Handheld Opera specialises in presenting opera in unconventional spaces.

Thank you for sharing your gift of voice with others!
Great holiday music! I know that it is a little early now (October), but I am already playing the cds'. I bought two, one for my home, and one to keep at work. I am so glad I indulged. Beautiful sounds to timeless songs!
