Let Berlioz take you on a musical journey through the traditional nativity with his L'enfance du Christ, performed here by the London Symphony Orcestra under the baton of Sir Colin Davis.
This album transports you through some real Christmas classics and some lesser known works of outstanding beauty. For the essentials, there's Mendelssohns Hark! the Herald Angels Sing and Gruber's Silent Night. We highly recommend the Poulenc for something different - try the etherial O Magnum Mysterium.
