A Selective Guide to the Arts in Los Angeles

Lo-Flo Records, the eclectic label launched by Jane McNealy, has released Bach to Christmas: Hymns and Chorales to Listen and Sing To, a joyous album available just in time for the holidays. A collection of Christian works for organ and voice, the 10-track, 20-minute album features ancient hymns and chorales. Seven of the songs were set by Johann Sebastian Bach while the remaining three on the album are attributed to Martin Luther. All tracks were performed by local, beloved musical director and organist Dr. James Smith in the Baroque and Classical tradition of holiday hymns. It is the ideal gift option for Bach buffs, Baroque or Classical enthusiasts, fans of Christian tunes or anyone who enjoys singing along to instrumentals. The album was released on all digital platforms on Nov. 26. It is also available as a free download — along with the songbook — from the label’s website www.loflorecords.com.
