A thoroughly charming collection.
Edward L. Killham | Washington, DC USA | 10/23/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Just in time for the holidays, the Netherlands Bach Society has brought out a thoroughly charming collection of 17th century Christmas music. For this CD, the Bach Society Chorus is joined by a smaller group named the Capella Figuralis, both of them under the confident direction of Jos van Veldhoven. Several famous composers are represented on the disc, headed by Michael Praetorius, Dietrich Buxtehude, and, of course, J.S. Bach. Lesser known figures are also included, however, and some of the songs listed as Anonymous (not the Anonymous 4) are equally authentic and moving. Verily, they make a joyful noise unto the Lord."
