Notes & Reviews:

In the 16th and 17th century, composers in southern Europe frequently chose theatrical settings of the already inherently dramatic Christmas story while northern European composers often preferred to draw on their extensive repertoire of Christmas carols and songs. This lovely album explores works from both backgrounds in charming performances by The Netherlands Bach Society, a 30 voice choir accompanied by a small array of instruments.

Includes work(s): hoe schoon lichtet de morghen ster (sweel by various composers.

Includes work(s): vom himmel hoch da komm ich her (m. praet by various composers.
