About

It is impossible to recognise the grumbling old man HallÚn in this music. Contemporaries thought of him as impossible. But the truth is probably that he was uncompromising in his musical ideals. This is a truly stunning Christmas Oratorio for everybody fed up with the usual Christmas music. Of course, never recorded before!

"I recommend that all folk who enjoy choral music try out this piece. It is, as we say in the North Country, 'a right good sing'. I played this work to a few friends, who are big Wagnerians. They thoroughly enjoyed it. If this work were a long lost, but recently discovered, essay by Wagner, it would soon become well known. It would certainly form part of his canon." - MusicWeb International
