A Christmas Celebration from Pacific Lutheran University


  • Choir of the West – Richard Nance, Conductor
  • University Chorale – Brian Galante, Conductor
  • University Symphony Orchestra – Jeffrey Bell-Hanson, Conductor

The music on this album represents works from the 2011 and 2012 Christmas concert seasons, and features a new large work for choir and orchestra by Dr. David Deacon-Joyner, Associate Professor of Music. “Unto Us,” composed in 2012, is a prime example of the excellent creative work PLU faculty members undertake. The opportunity for our students to work with a highly skilled composer to premiere a new piece is a truly valuable experience. We hope you enjoy the recorded performance of “Unto Us,” as well as all the other wonderful music on this disc. May it fill your heart with the warmth and joy of the season of Christmas.
