If you are looking for a Christmas music cd that do not contain all the usual 19th century carols and want to be really diverted, then this is the disc for you. The medieval scene is all too often overlooked - unjustly, I believe - and what you get here is a magnificent selection of music covering over half a millennium that, generally speaking, no-one has any idea about. Songs,chants, readings - they are all there, delivered in great style. I know this to be an infectious disc, since someone who has just heard it has asked for the details so they can order it themselves. I bought the original LP when it appeared in about 1975 and have played it every Christmas-time since ... usually more than just once!
Buy it - and have a great Christmas!

This was to replace an old vinyl copy (worn out) of this recording. This is recommended to all those who are interested in medieval music, especially at Christmas. It is certainly different and possibly an acquired taste, but enjoyable nevertheless. It is a good transfer from analogue to CD.The delivery was prompt.

HASH(0x9d7067bc) out of 5 stars Superb cd - well selected, well performed 18 Sept. 2000
By M. J. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This collection of Medieval Christmas music has a wonderful mixture of pieces - Hebrew cantillation, Old Saxon readings, plainchant, processional music - with varying countries of origin - Spanish, Provencal, French, Italian, German, English. The net result is a varied program that will appeal even to those not particularly familiar with Medieval music.
The musical instruments are period instruments - rebec, viola da gamba, flutes, recorders, shawm, etc. They are well utilized in the service of the words. The Boston Camerata is, as usual, a well trained choir - the words are clear, the voices blend beautifully.
This can be an excellent addition to your Christmas music collection - one that helps keep Christmas a religious holy day rather than just a civil holiday.

HASH(0x9b209870) out of 5 stars Not just for the holidays! 10 Oct. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This one's superb. I was absolutely thrilled to see it on CD a few years back (I had the LP). "Medieval Christmas" may sound a little...sullen, or something, but ho ho, this one is different. Sure it's early music, one of the best early music CDs I've heard, and I have many, but it fits the spirit of the holiday season perfectly without being preachy, or overtly Christmas-like. I bought a few copies for friends and they say they like it so much, they play it year 'round.
That's a heck of a recommendation for a Christmas CD, eh? I really don't know what makes this one so special. All that I know is that it's a 5-star production, and the "Renaissance Christmas" I would give only 3.5 stars. It doesn't pack as much of a wallop. So grab this one, folks, and enjoy. From me to you I love this CD!

HASH(0x9b4af384) out of 5 stars Deeply Endearing 14 Dec. 2004
By random buyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I was 7 years old and excited as all get out for Christmas when my stepfather brought this album into our family, and it immediately became a classic. This is by far my favorite music to listen to during christmas time. While carols become slightly stale as you grow older, the melodies and performance from this album are timeless, enchanting, historic and carry deep meaning. Now that I'm 33, I appreciate these performances even more, if that is even possible. A true gem. When I discovered it here on CD, I was so excited I telephoned my whole family to let them know.

HASH(0x9af7ba80) out of 5 stars Absolute brilliance! 22 Nov. 2008
By Jim Basehor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I've gone several years without writing a review of this, because I can't think of anything to add to the existing heaps of praise this disc has gotten. I found it by chance over 15 years ago, questing for Christmas music that was different from everything else available. I can't claim to be any sort of authority about this type of music, although I like it a lot, but I have heard a few badly executed albums of medieval music and know what I don't like - dry, academic interpretation, or on the other side of the spectrum, overly corny, cartoony sounding. This disc is alive and very soulful, reverent but respectful of its heritage but still lots of fun.

This is the first Christmas CD I listen to every year, right after the dishes are done from the Thanksgiving meal. I like it so much that I have not only given 7 copies of this as gifts (as well as giving 4 other Boston Camerata discs as gifts), but I have bought 5 other Boston Camerata discs for myself. They're all good, but this one is still my favorite. I wish satellite radio would pick this up so more people could hear it. It is otherworldly, unlike anything else out there...

HASH(0x9b1ee8b8) out of 5 stars Traditional over modern 21 Jan. 2008
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
We're bombarded with modern Christmas music at work ALL...DAY...LONG. Or at the mall or at the grocery store. Why would anyone want to bring the same music home with them that only reminds them of work? And yet people do this every year. Get back to the basics. Put on the kettle, light the fireplace, use those flicker flame lights on your tree, turn off all those modern white house lights and then put on this cd and just sit on your couch. You'll be in the 13th century in no time. Leave the Bob Hope specials and Lawrence Welk Christmases to the idiots.
