Nice mix of traditional and lesser-known pieces. Superb voices. Pipe organ a big plus (but where was the organist????). Uplifting in tough times.

The S.F. Chorus was wonderful, but I liked the 2nd half the best when the Symphony joined in, especially the Bach. O Holy Night was a highlight.

A festive way to jump-start the holiday season. Hearing the Chorus sing "O Holy Night" was like hearing angels sing. It transported me and our guests!
