Steeped in rich tradition, the PLU Christmas Festival Celebrations are held each year before enthusiastic crowds in Seattle, Portland and on the campus of PLU. We are proud of this new recording made to capture the seasonal beauty of PLU’s choral excellence. Featured is the premiere recording of the wonderful composition Hodie Christus natus est, composed by our own Dr. Richard Nance.
