On the third volume in harmonia mundi USA's series 'Carols from the Old and New Worlds', Paul Hillier and Chamber Choir Ireland celebrate the festive season with a wide-ranging mixture of new and traditional carols.

Framed by the seven ‘O' antiphons for Advent, this collection features carols from Ireland, the USA, Britain, and Alpine regions, many in arrangements by Hillier himself.

Chamber Choir Ireland (formerly the National Chamber Choir of Ireland) is Ireland’s flagship choral ensemble under the internationally celebrated and multi-award-winning choral conductor Paul Hillier as Artistic Director. The Choir is known for its unique approach to programming and has gained a reputation for the high artistic quality of its performances. Internationally, the Choir has toured in Europe, Asia and South America and in 2011 undertook its first US tour with the assistance of Culture Ireland as part of Imagine Ireland, a year of Irish Arts in America.

The Choir has made a significant contribution to the development of contemporary Irish choral music through its commitment to commissioning new work, including pieces by Gerald Barry, Tarik O’Regan, Kevin Volans, Siobhán Cleary and Jennifer Walshe.
