New York Polyphony is one of the foremost vocal chamber ensembles active today. The four men — ”singers of superb musicianship and vocal allure” (The New Yorker) — give vibrant, modern voice to repertoire ranging from Gregorian chant to cutting-edge compositions.Their dedication to innovative programming, as well as a focus on rare and rediscovered Renaissance and medieval works, has not only earned New York Polyphony two Grammy nominations and wide acclaim, but also helped to move early music into the classical mainstream.

Seven centuries of Christmas pass before the listener with new works composed for the ensemble by Michael McGlynn, Andrew Smith, and John Scott, alongside traditional medieval and Renaissance carols and motets by Clemens non Papa, Philippe Verdelot, and Toma?s Luis de Victoria.
