Sacred Treasures of Christmas


46 in stock

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.
