This all-new holiday album features special guest artists joining the renowned choir for an eclectic selection of holiday favorites, ranging from, Carol of the Bells to Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. The Vienna Boys Choir, the oldest boys choir in the world, traces its roots back to the 14th century and is certainly one of Austria's most famous cultural exports.
With half a millennium of tradition to their name, its members remain young and curious: THE VIENNA BOYS CHOIR
The Vienna Boys Choir may not be older than Christmas, but it is definitely older than most of the world’s Christmas carols. The official founding of the choir dates to 1498, a good 300 years before the composition of most Christmas classics. The choir’s actual roots go back to at least 1296, when Duke Albrecht of Austria referred to himself as founder of a music chapel in Vienna, which included a school of singing boys.
