This is my second purchase of this CD - I wore out the previous one over two seasons. I play it repeatedly from end of November to end of February!
Corelli, Torelli, Locatelli (and other) - wonderful ancient 'elli's and their sublime Christmas music. In the really old-fashioned sense of the word - Awesome!
Karajan is famed for wanting his music to sound "beautiful" - and this does.
Seems almost bad taste to mention the price - but - being practical - costs almost nothing!
Corelli - Concerto grosso fatte per la notte di Natale
Manfredini - Concerto grosso per il Santissimo Natale
Torelli - Concerto Pastorale per il Santissimo Natale
Locatelli - Concerto grosso
Gabrieli - Canzona a 8
It finishes with Gruber's 'Silent Night' - but I don't play that track in February!
