Christmas Music Through The Ages - 50 Pieces from 6th to 20th Centuries
A celebration of festive music with 50 pieces from the 6th to 20th centuries. Choirs, folk ensembles and soloists, handbell choir, brass band, viol consort, monks and nuns, musical boxes, street pianos, bagpipes, renaissance instruments, early music performers. This double set forms part of Saydisc’s 50th Anniversary celebration releases. It is the ultimate Christmas compilation spanning so many centuries and styles and will surely become a classic Saydisc release year on year.
"Saydisc celebrates its 50th Anniversary with this richly entertaining, medieval-flavoured anthology featuring the sound of choirs, handbells, a Breton bagpipe and musical boxes. It's never dull." BBC Music Magazine, Christmas 2015
“The two CDs are packed to the gunnels with wonderful things, and, apart from anything else represent outstanding value, with each disc close to eighty minutes of music. This is a priceless collection; although it has obvious relevance at this time of year, there is enough musical quality and interest to keep you going the whole year round.” Gwyn Parry-Jones, musicweb-international.com
