Notes & Reviews:

On this new holiday album of choral favorites, Hans-Christoph Rademann leads the world-famous RIAS Kammerchor in a musical retelling of the Christmas Story. With music ranging from Mendelssohn to Pärt, this collection leads the listener to the heart of Christmas Night and to rejoicing at the Savior's birth.

BBC Music Magazine, Christmas Issue 2013
The singing, all unaccompanied, has a natural, unforced eloquence, and is of a standard which makes criticism an impertinence. An outstandingly accompanied issue.

International Record Review, December 2013
The music is extraordinarily wide-ranging and has been exceptionally well chosen and sequenced... the result is an unmitigated joy- the performances are immaculate and most expressive, particularly of Poulenc's four motets 'pour le temps de Noel... a performance that could not, in my opinion be improved upon. This is an truly outstanding disc.

Sunday Times, 22nd December 2013
A Christmas concept album, taking us from darkness to fulfilment and reflection...the voices of the Berlin-based RIAS Kammerchor turn in atmospheric performances.
