noviembre 30, 2007 at 1:54 am (Christmas, Norman Luboff)

Norman Luboff (May 14, 1917 – September 22, 1987) was an American music arranger and choir director.

Born in Chicago, Illinois he was taught piano as a child and was part of his high school chorus. Luboff studied at the University of Chicago after which he wrote programs and sang for a Chicago radio station. In the mid-1940s, Luboff moved to New York City to expand his musical horizons but it would be in Hollywood where he would achieve national fame, doing the choral and vocal arrangements for a number of motion pictures. In 1950, he established the Walton Music Corporation to publish his musical works. However, he is best remembered as the founder and conductor of the Norman Luboff Choir, recognized worldwide as one of the leading choral groups of the 1950s, 60s and 70s. The choral group toured extensively and recorded more than seventy-five albums. The holiday albums Songs of Christmas (1956) and Christmas with the Norman Luboff Choir (1964) were perennial bestsellers for years, and the former was still available in 2004 as a compact disc re-release. Luboff and his choir also won the 1961 Grammy Award for Best Performance by a Chorus.

The Choir’s “Songs of the Cowboy” and “Songs of the Trail” albums were released on CD in 1999 as “Cowboy’s Dream” with 25 tracks.

Norman Luboff died of cancer at his home in Bynum, North Carolina in 1987. The Norman Luboff Collection was donated to the Music Division of the United States Library of Congress in 1993 by Mrs. Gunilla Marcus-Luboff.
