Notes & Reviews:

As the cold winter days descend upon us, Quadriga Consort's new release, On a Cold Winter's Day, presents long-forgotten Christmas music and carols from the British Isles. At times peaceful and contemplative, then merry and buoyant, On a Cold Winter's Day conjures memories of bygone days and awakens in us that sense of peace, wonder and excitement that the holiday season once held. Founded in 2001 by harpsichordist Nikolaus Newerkla, The Quadriga Consort is an early music ensemble from Austria.The band plays fresh interpretations of rearranged early British and Irish traditional music on historical instruments like the viola de gamba, barockcello and recorder.
