The tour starts in Vienna at the Christkindl Market and other Christmas scenes include the grotesque Krampus masqueraders, with St Nicholas, in Steyr. In Switzerland we see the great monastery church at Einsiedeln and in Bavaria the Abbey Church at Ottobeuren. In Austria scenes of Salzburg and its Christmas market are followed by Christmas cribs at Steyr and in the great cathedral at Linz, ending gazing upwards at the great Christmas fresco that decorates the dome of the monastery church at Einsiedeln. The music chosen for this tour is principally taken from the works of Handel and Johann Sebastian Bach, including excerpts from the former's Messiah and from two organ concertos, and from Bach's Christmas Oratorio, with the carol Silent Night heard in its original setting at the little church in Oberndorf, for which it was written.

If you know the old Naxos series most of those were very good as well but you didn't know what you were seeing unless you stopped the disk and went to the menu. They fixed it in this series by inserting a simple slide with a little information at the beginning of each section. As this is not a documentary per say, no more than that is needed, in my opinion -just enough to give some info without stopping the flow of music. No talking! Great!
each Christmas and relive the pleasant Christmas memories I experienced in July
when I got this DVD. This is a DVD for classical music lovers and travelers.
I have DVDs of the 'Old' NAXOS series of musical journeys
which were listed by "Composer".& sold in the 1990s.
The 'New' NAXOS have updated, BUT emphasize the Locales
NOT the Music.
Enjoy them Either Way -- Great Classical Music & NO TALKING.
outstanding performances in that vast repertoire; the majority of them performed by little known and highly underestimated musicians. It was a
big pleasure to sit and enjoy this musical journey with very festive Naxos music. Thank you, Herr Heymann for taking that initially unprofitable
step into classical music CD production history.

The music of Bach and Handel is great! While there are beautiful scenes, others are very pedestrian. I don't think the video quite comes up to the level of the sound track.Published 23 months ago by WesTexan
Eh...kind of boring. Not bad, but like driving the neighborhood looking at decorations while listening to classical Christmas musicPublished 24 months ago by millhouse
Not quite what I expected but mostly interesting. Music was fine. Much of the scenery was great.Published on December 2, 2014 by Trish
