Notes & Reviews:

Baroque Christmas music performed on period instruments by one America's leading early music ensembles, New Trinity Baroque directed by Predrag Gosta.

American Record Guide, November/December 2013
The performances are very fine, built on and driven by the excellent continuo group of violone, baroque harp, chitarrone, and chamber organ (the latter played by conductor Predrag Gosta). Tempos are very well judged, the rich timbres are deep, and the sequencing and selection of repertory is expert. In the Largo of Torelli's concerto the eloquent solo violin plays above soft staccato chords, evocative of watching, waiting, wondering, and tiptoeing to draw near - yet not disturb - the Holy Family. This program captures the Christmas spirit.
