If we would have called this composition “Holy Night in Bethlehem” and presented it as a Christmas single, it might have made the charts. 🙂 But we didn’t!
Listen here to the closing piece of our new album CHURCH SONGS FOR THE 21ST CENTURY – cd launch concert is on 4 december!
Easily the most harmonic and “straight” piece of music the Genetic Choir has composed to date. (but don’t worry we will keep doing the crazy stuff as well 😉 ) Enjoy!
The CD will be presented next Friday, December 4th, on our marvellous concert night in the Obrechtkerk Amsterdam. Be there or miss out on a one-time musical experience!

This year, you can spend your Christmas Eve listening to the Genetic Choir in the special Christmas edition of the Vorlesebuhne Utrecht on the 24th of December.
The Vorlesebuhne provides six writers who read strange, short prose, the Genetic Choir provides the sound and music and the Houtzaagmolen (old wood mill) in the center of Utrecht provides the right ambience for a heart-warming, unpredictable and contemplative “Stille Nacht”.

As we enjoy playing the game of inventing new labels for recordings made under completely different circumstances, listen now to the Genetic Choir release of this month: a song for the contemplative side of the festive season.
Earphones highly recommended to catch the spaciousness of the recording location! (applies to almost all music on our Audio page)
Performed and instantly composed during a concert in the Metaalkathedraal, Utrecht on 24-06-2012, in collaboration with composer/pianist Jeroen van Veen.
