5.0 out of 5 stars A Must for Christmas, 30 Nov. 2004
This review is from: Yule Riding (Audio CD)
With hundreds of generic 'your best carols' type CDs coming out at Christmas time treat yourself to something more interesting, lively and exciting! The York Waits and singer Deborah Catterall discover pieces from Christmas time before the Victorians 'standardised' the carols we all seem to use today. Employing an array of medieval and rennaisance instruments they play renditions of the carols and yuletide songs that were around in Europe back to the 14th Century. But this is no mere academic exercise, the array of instruments used and the vocal talent of Deborah Catterall bring these pieces to life and make the listener feel as if they are experiencing how Christmas must have been hundreds of years ago. It is fascinating to hear the 'original' versions of what have become our present day carols plus Christmas music from other countries (e.g. the charming 'El Noi de la Mare'from Catalonia where gifts for the Christ Child are raisins and sweet figs). There is a real glow about this CD - buy it and play it on Christmas Day around the tree - better still buy it and listen to it all year round!
