CD Reviews

The best stealth Christmas music ever
The Daily Prophet | Newbury Park, CA | 01/09/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For people who just can't bear to listen to another Christmas carol, this is the album. Completely instrumental, this is early music written with Christmas in mind, but it is in no way recognizable as Christmas music. These little heard pieces are brilliantly conducted and performed (as always) by Trevor Pinnock and the English Concert. I heard tracks 5 & 6 on the radio a few weeks before Christmas, when my spirits were suffering an uncharacteristic low, and found myself so completely moved by the beauty them, I had to have the CD. I didn't know what the other pieces would be like, but they all turned out to be perfection. Each selection is just the right amount of colour and flourish, moving from lovely largos to vivd vivaces without ever leaving the listener reaching to turn the volume down or off. I found the entire "1 hour plus" album thoroughly uplifting and easy to get lost in. And best of all, I finally have an album that expresses musically how I feel about Christmas, that doesn't irritate anyone (including me). All that and a great Amazon price. What more can you ask?!"
Wonderful music for anytime of the year

"I first purchased this CD about 15 years ago thinking I would like to add a classical Christmas album to my holiday music collection. I was very pleasantly surprised to discover a wonderful joyeous grouping of classical music -- it simply makes me feel good. I play at other times of the year as well. I highly recommend it for a musical feel good time!"
