  • About This Album

    The CD of this album is available to purchase at ArkivMusic.

    Drawing from the vast treasury of Christmas music of the 15th, 16th, and early 17th centuries, A Renaissance Christmas presents a collection of juxtapositions: pop and art music, seriousness and wit, and spirituality and jest all peacefully coexist here, as befits the holiday season.
