The musical content of this CD proves that Christmas inspired composers for many centuries. Of course one may think in terms of a religious feast but Christmas is celebrated also as an important Family feast, Santa, reindeer, sleigh and presents included. The result is a pattern-card with texts and melodies from different times and countries.       Challenge Classics on sale

  O Jesú dolce
       
  Niño Dios d’amor herido
       
  Pastores, si nos queréis
       
  Oyd, oyd, una cosa divina
       
  Virgen sancta
       
  A un niño llorando
       
  A Virgin most pure
       
  Ding Dong! merrily on high
       
  It came upon a midnight clear
       
  King Jesus hath a garden
       
  God rest ye merry, gentlemen
       
  Past three a clock
       
  A Venezuelan Christmas Carol
       
  O kerstnacht, schooner dan de dagen
       
  Laat ons met harten reine
       
  O herders, laat uw bokken en schapen
       
  Het komet een schip geladen
       
  O little town of Bethlehem
       
  Away in a manger
       
  Celebrate this Holy One
       
  Follow that star
       
  The Christmas song
       
  Have yourself a merry little Christmas
