Notes and Editorial Reviews

Also available in the specially-priced boxed-set, Noël - Carols & Chants For Christmas / Anonymous 4

"The Marian repertoire, clerical and popular, contains some of the most beautiful expressions of medieval thought which have come down to us. Anonymous 4, with gloriously perfect intonation and exact sense of breath and phrase, are the ideal interpreters of this legacy of music. There are any number of medieval Christmas recordings to be had, but if your interest in the Middle Ages, or in the beauty of the human voice for its own sake, is serious enough, you'll absolutely want this."
— John Atkinson, Sterophile
