Notes and Editorial Reviews

Fifteen years after EMI released Barbara Hendricks Sings Christmas, this album remains one of the bestsellers of the Swedish soprano, with more than 450,000 copies sold all over the world. Barbara Hendricks is back this year presenting a completely new Christmas album focused on sacred music, Shout for Joy (the title of a famous Christmas Negro spiritual). With her we shall travel from Germany to England, from France to the United States, with a collection of famous carols showing that the Christmas tradition is universal. Either with a large baroque orchestra or accompanied by organ, string quartet, lyra or guitar and bass, we will find with happiness some of the most famous of the season's songs, including Adeste Filelis, Panis Angelicus, Read more Silent Night, Ave Maria (by Gounod and Schubert), What Child Is This, O Holy Night, Joy to the World, as well as a beautiful selection of well-known Christmas Spirituals. Full of colour, this wonderful selection of sacred carols, Shout for Joy, is a delightful musical companion which will be at your side for the whole of Christmastide. Read less
