O Emmanuel – J.J. Wright, Notre Dame Children’s Choir & Fifth House Ensemble

Listen to a playlist of the album “O Emmanuel”

Experience Christmas music at its very best. O Emmanuel, a new album by J.J. Wright and the Notre Dame Children’s Choir, takes you on a compelling journey into the heart of Christmas through creative renditions of the texts and melodies of Advent (“O Come, O Come Emmanuel”, “Gabriel’s Message”) and Christmas (“Lo, How a Rose E’er Blooming”, “Hodie Christus natus est”). 

The children’s voices, jazz piano trio, adult vocal soloists, and instrumentalists of Fifth House Ensemble work together to create an unforgettable Christmas-listening experience. Recorded at the University of Notre Dame’s DeBartolo Performing Arts Center, this album was produced and edited by GRAMMY Award-winning producer Thomas Moore and engineered by GRAMMY Award-winning engineer Robert Friedrich of Five/Four Productions, Ltd.
