Carols and Christmas Music from Queens' College, Cambridge

This recording brings together some fine choral music from over one thousand years of Christmas celebrations. Familiar ancient carols such as 'The holly and the ivy' mix with medieval music and more recent choral pieces from the twentieth century in a programme sung by one of the Cambridge's finest choirs.

Plainsong is one of the greatest musical resources. Its purity and apparent simplicity have inspired composers over the centuries. In the old English hymn 'A solis ortus cardine' (track 1) the choir sings of the birth of Jesus and of the angels and shepherds of the Christmas story from Bethlehem. The scene is thus set for the rest of the programme. This leads us through a series of medieval and renaissance carols (many transcribed from manuscripts in Cambridge libraries) to recently composed music, including a beautiful piece by Michael Finnissy. 'Ave regina' (track 17) which is based on the words and music of another plainsong hymn.
