Release Date: Friday 4 October 2019

Ranging from unaffected simplicity to elaborate polyphony, the composers of the 17th and 18th centuries left us some of the most sublime pages of sacred music intended to tell the story of the Nativity. The extraordinary musical legacy produced as a result continues to resonate today with its timeless union of solemnity and joy.

"A handsome package matched by a lively interpretation...Superb, richly detailed performances set in a sumptuous acoustic." (BBC Music Magazine, October 2005, ****/***** on Christmas Oratorio)
