Christmas Greeting on SACD-Hybrid

Bach Collegium Japan and Masaaki Suzuki have sung of the wonders of Christmas a number of times, in Bach's cantatas and Christmas Oratorio as well as in Handel's Messiah. Here, instead, we hear the choir a cappella in a selection of classic Christmas carols. Masato Suzuki, son of the ensemble's founder and director, has selected some of the best-loved songs of Christmas, such as Adeste fideles and Silent Night, as well as less familiar hymns, arranging them especially for these singers. A consummate organist, he also performs a number of Louis-Claude Daquin's noëls variés - keyboard variations on Christmas songs which became a highly popular genre in 18th-century France.
