Product Description & Reviews

The syndicated radio program Millennium of Music and its host Robert Aubry Davis have done a great deal to introduce American audiences to the enormously varied repertory referred to as early music. Now Davis and his colleagues are releasing a series of compilation discs showcasing the tremendous range and beauty of "the 1,000 years before the birth of Bach." The well-chosen selections on volume 2 of the series (the obligatory Christmas collection) run from 12th-century chant to two excerpts from Handel's Messiah and focus on the tender, reverent side of the holiday rather than exuberant celebration. A particularly interesting essay about the history of Christmas as a celebration is included. Those already familiar with classical or "early" music will probably prefer entire works over excerpts, but newcomers to this repertory should find this sampler a good starting point--have a listen, decide what you like, and go on exploring from there. --Matthew Westphal
