AllMusic Review by

This richly textured musical tapestry gracefully weaves together sacred choral and instrumental music from the High Renaissance and Baroque eras. Twenty-eight tracks feature composers such as Bach, Handel, Monteverdi, Purcell, Farina and Pachelbel, performed by Concentus Musicus Wien and The Leonhardt Consort. Some are less holiday-like than the rest, offering an extensive (nearly 80 minutes) mixed bag of cantatas, masses, magnificats and assorted instrumental works in this special collection of seasonal music.
