The 30-strong, mixed-voice, Seattle-based Choral Arts (formerly Choral Arts Northwest), founded by artistic director Richard Sparks, is one of the outstanding chamber choirs in the United States. Focusing primarily on romantic and contemporary music, the choir's repertoire has ranged from Renaissance music to contemporary Swedish works. In 1997, CAN put together a program of Scandinavian Christmas music with David Dahl as guest organist. This recording consists of works from that popular program. David Dahl also plays seven organ works on the new Fritts organ at PLU in Tacoma.
