Product Description

Product Description

Amazon.ca

Offering 77 minutes of music and a 28-page booklet with Danish and English texts, A Danish Christmas is an anthology comparable to the best full-price releases. Insightful notes by Andrew Smith explain the significance of carols in the traditional Danish Christmas celebrations, helpfully setting the scene for this celebratory collection. Here is elegantly appealing music by composers famous (Carl Nielson's tender, "My Heart Always Wanders"), unfamiliar (Egil Harder's "The Christmas Tree With Its Decorations") and unknown--for many of these carols derive from the folk tradition. "Praise Be To You, Jesus Christ" is one of four carols to feature exquisite soprano singing from one of Musica Ficta's excellent soloists, though the majority depend purely upon the ensemble's finely balanced choral sound. Formed in 1996 by composer and conductor Bo Holton, this group are splendidly accomplished, whether it be with simple monophonic lines, or the more complex and thrilling polyphony of "What A Great Throng And Noise". They have also recorded a programme of church music by Ockeghem, which includes a fine Requiem. --Gary S. Dalkin

Beautiful and rare! Dec 18 2006
By Carolyn Hollingsworth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Out of nearly a hundred Christmas music recordings, this one is one of my all-time favorites. The lyrics are all in Danish - of which I understand not a word - but the effect is pure Christmas. Beautiful voices and exquisite melodies combine in an unforgettable manner. The overall effect is very soothing and gentle. In fact, many pieces seem to be lullabies. I would suggest sampling several of the songs to see if these gentle sounds appeal to you.

A Danish Christmas Choral concert Feb. 12 2007
By Shirley R. Honore - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a fine recording of Danish christmas carols from Danish composers, and traditional carols. This is the first time I had heard a collection all in Danish and I find it an excellent addition to my collection of Christmas music. The choir is outstanding! Shirley R. Honore'

Gorgeous music Dec 13 2010
By doktorlehar - Published on Amazon.com

LIke the earlier reviewer, I am not Danish and have no ethnic connection to Denmark, but I found this to be one of the most beautiful recordings of Christmas music I've ever encountered. The chorus is extremely fine, the music tuneful and approachable, and it's clearly a labor of love for the performers. There are a few famous names here, but many of the pieces are modern arrangements of Danish-language carols and hymns. Makes me want to become a Dane, at least for the holiday season!

Ideally played in a warm house on a snowy December night. Pure magic! Thank you, Bo Holten and Musica Ficta!

If you are of Danish ancestry, you will enjoy this CD. Got it for a family member last Christmas. She listens to it out of season too!
