Thanks to an extraordinarily talented and generous Keepa reader, who shall be known for the time being only as “Phantom of the Chapel,” we can now hear beautiful sound recordings of the pieces posted on our early Advent calendar. This post will be updated in about a week with additional audio files, and I’ll update past posts to include individual recordings.

Thank you, Phantom, more than I can say.

Clicking on a title will take you to the post with the sheet music. Clicking on “audio” will, well, play the audio file.
