COR16027 Christus Natus Est: An Early English Christmas

A medley of carols ranging from the demure to the rustic; a simple expression of joy and wonder. Some have an element of dance in them, including some of the ‘Devil’s best tunes given back to God’ in the form of carols. A collection of appropriate medieval instruments, including fiddles, harps, lutes and drums, accompanies the singers.

The Sixteen
Harry Christophers


“A sublime Gloria by Sheppard ... and, finest of all, Byrd’s Lullaby in a masterly performance.”
Gramophone
