Notes & Reviews:

Christmas, more than any other holiday, is deeply rooted in a nation's culture. This is why Christmas carols from different cultures sound so vastly different from one another. This collection of songs includes music all the way from the Middle Ages to the present day. Benjamin Britten's A Ceremony of Carols is a notable track on this release, and is built on folk carols and considered by many to be one of the best Christmas cantatas. One of the world's best choirs, the SWR Vokalensemble, performs these works.
