Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

This compilation of re-issues, originally recorded in the 1990s and 2001 features music, by Bach, Charpentier, Gabrieli, Schütz, Corelli (the famous beloved "Pastorale") and Praetorius, all of it beautiful and just right for celebrating a festival of light, hope, worshipful praise, and jubilation. It is performed to perfection by several period vocal and instrumental groups, the latter tuned to various "authentic" pitches. Some of the pieces are excerpts from longer works, some are arrangements, such as four lovely French Christmas carols in an instrumental version by Charpentier, whose harmonic and contrapuntal complexity makes the simplicity of the melodies all the more touching. There are also two reconstructions by Paul McCreesh of Christmas services as they might have been heard during Gabrieli's lifetime at Saint Mark's in Venice and during Schütz's lifetime at the Dresden Hofkapelle. The program is arranged for utmost contrast between vocal and instrumental textures, speed, length, mood and character. Among the highlights are the devout, fervent, quite melancholy "O Jesu me dulcissime" by Gabrieli, who wrote for voices with the same luminous brilliance as for brasses, and Praetorius' "In dulce jubilo," which, with fanfares of trumpets and drums, makes a fittingly triumphant, glorious ending. --Edith Eisler

5.0 out of 5 stars 5-PLUS Stars December 27, 2005
Format:Audio CD
There are not many things in life that I would describe as just Gorgeous -- but this album is definitely one of them. The selections, the arrangements, the production quality, all are clean, yet lush -- simultaneously light and rich. The effect is wonderful.

This may not appeal to hardest-core periodists, but for beautiful music lovingly performed, the album is very hard to beat. Not only rocketted to the top of my favorite holiday album list - it is already high on my favorite all-time list. It will NOT be getting put away with the rest of the Christmas albums. Year-round keeper!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful! - December 23, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The BAROQUE CHRISTMAS ALBUM is a simply wonderful compilation album. The Renaissance/Baroque feeling of Christmas is really brought home by a mixture of classical groups and choruses. I own a lot of Christmas albums and it is rare to find one of such good sonic quality that maintains a mood so well. If you don't need one this year, consider stocking up for Christmas 2014. As of this writing, the price is very reasonable.

The Baroque Christmas Album

I gave this as a present and was told that I couldn't have chosen something which would have given more pleasure. It had hardly been off the CD player.

It deserved 5 star rating because: (1) Very good sound recording (2) Good vocal presentation with familiar Christmas tunes (not English language)
its worth buying it !

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent February 23, 2014
By B. Geez
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Although it sounds fine and is a nice addition to my Christmas music collection, it just doesn't have the tightness and artistry you'd expect if a particular ensemble were prominently credited with the performance.

Very pleasant to listen to. Recording is excellent. Pieces are well selected. Overall mood of the album is Christmas quiet if you know what I mean. Would recommend it to all who want an alternative to Jingle Bells.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for those who appreciate music written for December.
I would recommend this for those who understand that some music that was written for the time of Christmas and is much more subtle. (contemporary choices from Amazon for example).
