American Record Guide, November 2017

This is not well-known carols or hymns. The repertoire ranges from relatively modern to classic JS Bach. Of special interest is music from Poland that might not be well known, including suites from Feliks Raczkowski, Piotr Drusinski, and Mieczyslaw Surzynski. The most dramatic moments take place in the final track, the ‘Weihnacht’ by Feliks Nowowiejski.
