I have a vast collection of Christmas CDs, and of all of them, this is my favourite. You will not find cathedral sounds or elaborate orchestration here: what you will discover, though, are Christmas carols as they would have been heard by ordinary people.. It is an absolute delight - I first bought this when it was produced, in 1993, on the strength of a review in the BBC music magazine - I have not been disappointed.

One of the best traditional Christmas records I have heard. 15 Dec. 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I collect Christmas recordings, and this has quickly become one of my favorites. The singing and playing are first rate (as are the Boston Camarata's other recordings). If you need an antidote for slow, syrupy, boring mall Christmas music, this is it!

One of the best Christmas Albums 4 Sept. 2000
By M. J. Smith - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This album is an excellent selection of early American music done is a variety of styles - the notes are very clear about the choices made in performance.
Watchman of Zion is of the Mennonite shape-note tradition performed as an unacompanied solo. Kingbridge is done in the West Gallery tradition in its American flavor i.e. women's voices rather than high instruments. Baptismal Anthem is from the Original Sacred Harp with the addition of the alto line i.e. as it would be performed by shaped-note singing communities today. It does not contain the singing of the shapes that you would expect on a folk recording of the piece. The flute solo of Wayfaring Stranger is a gem from folk transmission.
The remainder of the album is as diverse and enjoyable. This should fall well into the top ten Christmas albums.

Breathtaking! 29 Aug. 2001
By ladygwyneth - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I bought this CD after hearing the Boston Camerata live performing Carmina Burana. Lucky enough to meet them afterwards, I asked one of them which of their Christmas albums was the best, and he recommended this one. I was not disappointed. As other reviewers have said, it's refreshing to hear Christmas music that's different from the run of the mill, but it's also done with such artistry and feeling that I imagine if they remade Alvin and the Chipmunks' Christmas album, it would still be unutterably gorgeous. The group choral numbers are so rich you could lose yourself in them, especially Lovely Vine and The Midnight Cry. But for me the highlight is bass-baritone Joel Frederiksen's tender rendition of Hush My Babe, which gives me goosebumps every time I hear it. If you have any interest in choral music, early music, or just plain good music, buy this!

One of the best 30 Nov. 2001
By lutefan - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I'm a big fan of the Boston Camerata and Christmas music, and the combination here makes for one of my all-time favorite discs. The music is melodic, beautiful and delightfully original. Joel Cohen always seems to know what instrumentation and what voices "belong" to a certain piece; not a single track misfires. If you like this group, be sure to check out their other Christmas discs, in particular (in my view) "Noel Noel!", a disc of French seasonal music, and "Sing We Noël: Christmas Music from England and Early America", which is an older but still wonderful recording.

Deeply spiritual Christmas music 22 Dec. 2001
By C. Wilbers - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I have listened to this album through three Christmas seasons, and it remains my favorite. While I agree with the praise rendered for the wonderful artistry of the Boston Camerata, it is the content of the lyrics that really make this album special amongst other Christmas albums. The ability to express scriptural content in a deeply moving way is something that many contemporary hymn writers lack. I especially like "The Midnight Cry." And my children and I both enjoy "Baptismal Anthem" with its word picture of John the Baptist. Challenge yourself to a deeper relationship with God through these lyrics!
