Most tellingly, Christmas songs render the joy and anticipation of children at Christmastime. The children’s choir “SingsalaSing” of the Landesakademie for young musicians in Baden-Württemberg, Ochsenhausen, sings 26 traditional and new yuletide songs from Germany and neighboring countries. These are especially suited to children in elementary school. The colorful and diverse arrangements are by Bobby Fischer, Markus Munzer-Dorn, Veit Hübner, Christoph Müller. This CD is an invitation to children and their families to join in singing together during the Advent and Christmas seasons. This CD is part of the “Lieder project” which promotes and benefits singing with children. This project presents texts, music and recordings of songs to sing. It emphasizes quality and is designed especially for children. The goal is to once again focus on singing together in families. To date, 100 solo singers, vocal ensemble, choirs, instrumentalists and over 300 children have offered their time and talents to the Carus Lieder project. Profits derived from the sale of books and CDs in the Lieder project have now reached 400,000 Euros – these proceeds are being donated to causes which further singing with children.
