Christmas at Luther


December 19, 2019

Each December the Center for Faith and Life at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa, rings out with the sacred and the exuberant: the sounds of the Christmas season.

The combined choirs of Luther College, the Luther Orchestra, the handbell choirs along with the foundational presence of the mighty Luther College pipe organ present a concert of vivid joy and profound inspiration.

Enjoy highlights from this year's "Whom Angels Greet with Anthems Sweet," recorded recently at Luther College and hosted by Andrea Blain.
