About

Christmas. A word that most likely takes us back to our childhood, a festive time veiled in mystery. A magical word evoking a plethora of colours, fragrances and tones. A time when perhaps everyone sings at least a few of the best-known carols, which have always been sung at home.

One such, the hymn 'Christ the Lord is Born', resounding in full strength and joy in churches and throughout Advent and beyond, is based on a Latin song more than half a millennium old. Many other Bohemian and Moravian carols have been sung since the 17th or 18th century.

People in other European countries too have for centuries cherished songs emanating a peculiar power and magic. The most popular Yuletide songs in England include 'Good King Wenceslas', telling the legend of Saint Wenceslas, King of Bohemia.

The present album contains more than 80 minutes of music – the most beautiful Bohemian and Moravian carols, supplemented by old Christmas songs of other European nations. They have been given a singular sound by Miroslav Venhoda, an artist who has co-formed a new performance approach to Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque music.

The songs featured on this recording created the festive atmosphere in the homes of our ancestors and still continue to evoke the mysterious Christmas time of our childhood.

The most beautiful carols enhancing the festive Christmas atmosphere.
