About

The Vienna Boys Choir is the most famous and best known boys’ choir in the world and can look back on a history spanning more than 500 years. On this double CD the choir presents a varied programme of music with a Christmas slant, including works from the Italian Renaissance, German Romantic and English classical modern music.

Many eminent composers (e.g. Gluck, Mozart and Bruckner) made music with the Vienna Boys Choir, and Franz Schubert was himself a member of the choir. Today there are about 100 boys in the choir, making up four concert choirs. These choirs give about 300 concerts each year worldwide. Their repertoire extends from the Middle Ages up to the present day, from classical choral music to popular and film music.
