Notes & Reviews:
The historic Freiburg Cathedral became the perfect setting for this concert of Baroque Christmas Favorites, captured live in 1999. Excerpts from Bach's Christmas Oratorio and many other seasonal Bach standards couple with yet more musical, seasonal gifts by Handel and Mozart. Packaged in luxury digipak format and featuring soprano Barbara Bonney and baritone Matthias Goerne with the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra, German Brass and the Freiburger Domsingknaben, this DVD deserves all due consideration as the soundtrack for every Christmas holiday celebrant, or gifted for such.Notes & Reviews:
