 In this album of traditional songs of Advent and Christmas, Connie’s pure, soaring voice is wrapped in the instrumental richness of one of America’s premier chamber ensembles. Connie collaborates with conductor Bruce Sorrell and the composers of the Kansas City Chamber Orchestra to create a lush new holiday collection—guitar, highland bagpipes, tinwhistle and hurdy gurdy entwine with strings, brass, woodwinds and percussion in a set of nine winter carols arranged just for this CD. A recording of transcendent loveliness, sacred in atmosphere, The Holly and the Ivy captures the warmth and hope of the winter season, performed by a singer whose vision continues to be at the forefront of traditional music.
