What's been missing from your holidays all these years? Music by the Seattle Mandolin Orchestra, that's what. Well, finally, here's the solution: our new holiday CD, Rejoice—directed and produced by Joseph Pollard White, with soprano soloist Julie Finch. Covering the spectrum from G. F. Handel to Irving Berlin, Rejoice offers a taste of our popular holiday concerts, which have been packing out the performance spaces at local libraries ever since we had hair and acid-wash jeans.

The bulk of the songs were recorded in one of the sacred spaces of alternative rock: Seattle's Studio Litho, operated by Pearl Jam guitarist Stone Gossard. Additional sessions were recorded by J. M. McNulty at The Vera Project. Released on Dec. 3, 2013, Rejoice is available via download from, or by mail order via PayPal.

Preview Rejoice by listening to a couple of sample tracks: We can also take postal orders. Cost is $15 plus $3 for U.S. shipping. If you live outside the United States, please before ordering.
