Essential Christmas releases: Let the Angels Sing European Carols and Song
Michala Petri(recorder) Danish National Vocal Ensemble cond Michael Bojesen, OUR Recordings 6.220615

This is an oddity, but a delightful one. Any Christmas collection that begins with the magical Basque Gabriel`s Message sets me in a receptive mood. More than that,- all 17 European Carols (Sung in English) are refreshed and made new by Bojesen`s ingenious but never overelaborate arrangements, and by the angelic sound of Petri`s recorders: sometimes soft and melodious, sometimes gleefully shrill. The choir`s singing is excellent-incisive, expressive and natural. (DC)
