Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without festive music and this 10-CD offering is headed by a very distinguished list of artists – Herbert von Karajan, the Choir of St Thomas’s Church, Leipzig, Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Benjamin Britten, Leontyne Price, Joan Sutherland, Sir Adrian Boult, and many others.

At this time of fellowship works such as Bach’s Christmas Oratorio, Handel’s Messiah, Britten’s A Ceremony of Carols, Tchaikovsky’s ballet The Nutcracker as well as traditional Christmas carols ranging from O Tannenbaum to Silent Night are always welcome guests.

Five original albums including complete recordings from the years 1952-1961 are augmented with bonus tracks of indispensable Christmas fare such as Corelli’s Concerto fatto per la note di natale (the “Christmas Concerto”), excerpts from the Christmas part of Bach’s “Little Organ Book”, Britten’s A Boy was born and festive trumpet music by Haydn.
