Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Unto Us a Child is Born" invites to a diverse and wide-ranging journey into choral music for Christmas. Beginning with Mary and Joseph's arduous journey to Bethlehem and continuing through the heightened sense of anticipation and uncertainty of Advent season, we arrive at the worship of Mary, the mother of Jesus. Step by step, the program comes nearer to the celebration of Holy Night and the commemoration of the Birth of Christ. The musical journey ends on Twelfth Night, marking the conclusion of the Twelve Days of Christmas and the coming of the Epiphany. Nicol Matt (*1970) is one of Germany's few new generation conductors enjoying international reputation. He is conductor of the Chamber Choir of Europe (which, until spring Read more 2002, bore the name Nordic Chamber Choir). Since 2001, he has also conducted the amadeus-choir. These two choirs have given numerous concerts around the world. Read less
