Live Christmas CD and DVD Coming

Sissel, together with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, will be releasing a CD and DVD this Fall of their live Christmas concert, which was recorded last December.

The CD will be titled "Like an Angel: Christmas with Sissel and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir."

Deseret Book (Mormon Church-owned bookstore) has the following description of the album: "Music critics have called her voice 'ethereal,' 'pristine' and 'captivating.' Throughout her career, Norwegian-born singing sensation Sissel has performed with a variety of artists whose styles range from folk to jazz and from rock to hip-hop. She has sung for royalty and shared stages with superstars such as Celine Dion and Sting. But for Sissel, singing with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square was 'a match made in heaven.' In her first-ever Christmas album released in the U.S., Sissel has collaborated with the world famous Choir to offer a dazzling collection of music for the holidays." (Except this is NOT Sissel's first Christmas album to be released in the USA. She sang more songs on "Vienna Noel" (1995) which was a live CD of her concert with Placido Domingo and Charles Aznavour.)

Tracks include:

Like an Angel Passing through My Room*
Hark! The Herald Angels Sing!*
Bring a Torch, Jeannette, Isabella
In the Bleak Mid-Winter*
Wexford Carol
Spirit of the Season, from The Polar Express
In dulci jubilo
Mitt hjerte alltid vanker (My Heart Always Wanders)*
Noe! Noe!
Away in a Manger
Mariä Wiegenlied
Ring, Christmas Bells (medley)
Vitae lux (Light of Life)*

Angels, from the Realms of Glory*

*Sung by Sissel

A live DVD of the concert will also be released titled "Christmas with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir: Featuring Sissel."

The CD and DVD will be released some time in October.
