Notes & Reviews:

Blessed with a crystal-clear voice, exquisite diction and a natural lyricism, Fritz Wunderlich remains hugely admired, 50 years after his death. For example, BBC Music Magazine placed Wunderlich among the Top 4 Tenors in the World. This album combines traditional classical Christmas songs and carols with excerpts from Wunderlich's legendary recording of Bach's Christmas Oratorio - it makes an ideal soundtrack to the festive season for anyone looking to discover a new voice.
