Notes & Reviews:

Six Christmas songs are released as a teaser for the 2014 Christmas album and at a special price! On Christmas at Home the renowned tenor Martin Petzold sings the most-loved German Christmas songs, accompanied by Martin Hoepfner at the guitar. The teaser features the well-known folk tune 'O du froehliche, Drei Koen'ge' by Peter Cornelius, and other favorites. The entire Christmas album with further traditional songs - including 'In dulci jubilo,' 'Es ist ein Ros entsprungen' and 'Stille Nacht' will be released in time for Christmas 2014. Martin Petzold has invited two guests to join him in his project: boy soprano Jakob Grabenhorst and soprano Alice Ungerer perform the tenor's personal Christmas highlights on this CD, but are also featured as soloists.
