Notes & Reviews:

The festival of Christmas is rich in music for worship and for concert performance, much of it rooted in seasonal hymns or traditional melodies. This recording of festive choral music includes one of Bach's richly scored cantatas and Mendelssohn's Christmas song 'Vom Himmel Hoch' which was inspired by his admiration for the music of Bach. Vaughan Williams' nativity play 'The First Nowell' incorporates arrangements of many traditional English carols.
