5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificat! October 27, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is the most beautiful CD that I have ever heard. It has very religious overtones -- after all, it is "Music of the Nativity". Thus, it makes a delicious Christmas CD. The songs stir the deepest parts of my soul. The sound mix is prime and the performances, especailly the vocal and string renditions, are exceptional. The stand out songs are "Magnificat" and the two songs that follow it. This is like on a moonset/sunrise run on a big empty beach with the bright stars slowly fading in the violet hues of the gaining light. That is what this CD means to me. Check it!

5.0 out of 5 stars outstanding! December 26, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This CD contains some of the most beautiful sacred christmas music ever written. The performances are exellent, and each piece follows the next in a perfectly balanced flow. One thing worth noticing is that in addition to the the most commonly heard version of In Dulci Jubilo by Scheidt it also includes the rarer and even more beautiful version by Buxtehude. That version is followed by the last cut, my own favorite Bach choral Ach mein herzliebes Jesulein. If you can't make it to church this christmas, listening to this record might be the next best thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shiveringly beautiful... October 22, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Having sung most of the works on this album, I already knew they were moving and beautiful, but the crystalline voices of this ensemble, their blend and precision makes this a must-have for an lover of the genre.
