The Christmas Story

Harmonia Mundi
Theatre of Voices, Ars Nova Copenhagen, Paul Hillier

Inspired by the much-loved service of "Nine Lessons and Carols" given every Christmas Eve in England, this recording presents the Nativity story told through plainchant, motets, 17th Century dialogues and traditional folk carols. Paul Hillier leads Theatre of Voices and Ars Nova Copenhagen in music he has culled and arranged from Italian, German, Danish, English and American sources.
