Produktbeskrivelse

After our first cd for Channel Classics: The Gentlemen of the Chapel Royal, with English Polyphony of the Renaissance, we now present ourselves in a completely different guise: on this Christmas cd we give you a glimpse of our taste for the lighter styles. You will hear a wide selection of the personal favourites of our singers, such as Follow that star, A wonderful Christmastime, and Jingle bell rock. In addition to other popular Christmas Ballads from the American Songbook, such as Have yourself a merry little Christmas and White Christmas, we have put a new spin on a couple of traditional carols, like Silent Night and Es ist ein Ros entsprungen. Most of the arrangements were written especially for The Gents, and the addition of instruments gives several of the pieces a completely different atmosphere, such as, for example, the opening number, Gaudete Christus est natus: at first its as though you were listening to a track from our earlier cd, with old English music, but gradually it changes with the addition of the marimbas, and finally it ends in a sparkling, swinging conclusion!
