Notes and Editorial Reviews
Mozart's divine melodies always bring atmosphere and beauty to any Christmas celebration. This is the perfect gift for your friends and family. This album is designed with a charming and well-balanced Mozartian selection of music - from sacred, orchestral and instrumental pieces. Some of them are explicitly associated with Christmas and some have a wider association with the holiday season.
