Notes and Editorial Reviews

An amazingly comprehensive 2CD set of 45 well known Christmas Carols taken from two LP albums by the Great Alfred Deller whose knowledge and understanding of the history and origins of Seasonal Songs results in a uniquely authentic approach which sounds as if it has resonated through the centuries. With his Consort, Alfred Deller recorded over 50 LPs of folk songs and sacred music spanning from the Medieval Era through to Baroque. Since the Christmas Music tradition arose from Medieval Mystery Plays, with this album you can trace the development through the Renaissance and Baroque eras.
