Compositions by Bartholomäus Gesius appear on
Elizabeth Anderson and friends put a new twist into Christmas carols and CDs: eight Christmas tracks neatly packaged as a Christmas card with a vibrant front cover and room for a personal inscription.
The music on this CD is a historical Christmas “pick of the pops”, from the late 1400s to the end of the Baroque period. Directed by Douglas Lawrence, the Australian Chamber Choir offers a program recorded live in concert during their 2019 European tour. The 17 tracks are drawn from from lesser-known seasonal works, championing a sublime repertoire that is all too often neglected.
