Sacred Treasures of Christmas

£12.00

Recorded on the very eve of the UK’s first Coronavirus lockdown, and in the generous acoustic of St Augustine’s church in Kilburn, this 57-strong choir of boys and men, makes an absolutely heavenly sound. There is purity in the tone, exquisite balance across the voices, and a magical empathy with this programme of 15th and 16th century polyphonic motets which set texts relevant to the seasons of Christmas, Epiphany and Candlemas.
