Christmas with Robert Shaw

This gem of a disc encapsulates the very essence of favorite Christmas choral music. The selections include excerpts from Bach's canatas, Berlioz's L'Enfance du Christ, and Handel's Messiah, as well as traditional carols, and even portions of Vivaldi's Four Seasons.

It's a joyous holiday collection unified by memorable performances from America's favorite chorus, ably backed by a first rate symphony orchestra, and led by the inimitable Robert Shaw. From the Label
