Notes & Reviews:

Christmas music is communicated to us at its loveliest in the basic forms of the hymn and chorale, but equally in the instrumental music associated with the Christmas festival. As long ago as 1700, Johann Kuhnau commented: "When our town pipers blow a sacred song for the festive season with all their trombones from the tower, we are stirred beyond words and imagine that we are hearing the angels sing."
