Four Centuries Of Christmas Music / Goodwin, Mcfadden, Bär
Here is a highly intelligent collection of reflective and joyous music for the Christmas season! Drawing upon musical inspirations from Praetorius to Britten, the SWR Rundfunkorchester Kaiserslautern is joined by World Class soloists (Claron McFadden, Olaf Bär) and magnificent choirs (SWR Vokalensemblem, Mainzer Domchor) in a true Holiday feast. Of special importance to collectors is a recording of the rare, and utterly charming Weihnachtsouvertüre by Otto Nicolai.
