Notes & Reviews:
From dark to light - this could be an alternative title for this audio journey through the Christmas festival. Hansjorg Albrecht has put together famous Christmas choruses and songs from the German Romantic period to create a musical Christmas story which starts with the annunciation of Jesus’ birth and continues via the crib scene to finish with the jubilant chorus Frohlocket ihr Volker auf Erden (Rejoice Ye People on Earth). The moods and colors of the program are as varied as the ensembles heard here.
