Notes and Editorial Reviews

Revels recordings are invitations to experience musically the world cultures that are the focus of the nationally popular Christmas Revels productions. This, the 30th album, is set against a background of the Italian Renaissance and goes beyond familiar repertoire and into the crosscurrents of culture that created the era’s rich fusion of sound and style. This is a gorgeous mix of Renaissance music by the period’s greatest composers, some born in Venice and others who migrated to and settled there, greatly influencing the city’s vast cultural landscape. Plus, this album features Italian children’s music and holiday carols that the whole family will enjoy. “Revels’ music evokes the true spirit of the winter holiday and puts us in touch with Read more centuries of Yuletide celebrating.” (Utney Reader) “Revels is a national treasure!” (Boston Herald) Read less
