Pianist Lowella Cherry provided accompaniment for each of the selections, including Cantique de Jean Racine, Op. 11 by Gabriel Faure; "Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence" by Gustav Holst; "The Holly and the Ivy" arranged by Russell Robinson; "Christmas Sanctus" by Susan and Lee Dengler featuring soprano Holliman; "In the Bleak Midwinter" by Holst featuring mezzo-soprano Hamilton; "O How Amiable" by Vaughan Williams; "River" by Joni Mitchell featuring mezzo-soprano Garcia; and "Magnificat" and Nunc Dimittis in G, Op. 81 by C.V.
