“As classy as Christmas albums come” ★★★★The Guardian
“Festive and fantastic!” Rondo Magazin

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.
