About this Recording

NAXOS BOOK OF CAROLS (THE)

The Naxos Book of Carols is a collection of both the very old and very new. It is a selection of best-loved and new-found carols, drawing on centuries of tradition. The settings are all new, commissioned by Naxos for this recording (scores available for download from www.naxoscarols.com in association with Faber Music). The carols unfold in four narrative sequences each focusing on a different part of the Christmas Story – from The Hope of Advent to the announcements of The Message, the joy of the birth of The Baby and the celebration of the coming of The King of Kings. There are 24 carols, one for each day of Advent.
