IN DULCI JUBILO–Music for the Christmas season by Buxtehude and Friends

Theatre of Voices, Paul Hillier

DaCapo SACD 6220661 @ £14.25*

The Guardian “… this is as classy as Christmas albums come: music from an important Swedish archive of northern European baroque music delivered with razor-sharp clarity by Paul Hillier’s Theatre of Voices and on luminous period instruments. There is special attention given to the elegant and multicoloured music of Dietrich Buxtehude.”

In the gloomy sky of a winter’s night a bright star emerges and ignites Advent’s anticipation of the Nativity –the year moves towards the rebirth of light just at the time of greatest darkness. With evocative works by the Baroque master Dietrich Buxtehude and the circle of 17th-century northern German composers around him, Paul Hillier conducts his Grammy award-winning ensemble Theatre of Voices in a stimulating addition to the traditional Christmas repertoire.
