Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Austrian Quadriga Consort's On a Cold Winter's Day is a luminscently beautiful collection of traditional English and Irish Christmas music and carols whose clear and close recording makes it sound particularly crisp and Christmassy. It is utterly joyful and brings out the true fellowship of Christmas. Of all the discs here, this is the one that sounds most like a celebration of Christmas, which I'm sure has something to do with its improvisational quality.
