Alfred Deller and Deller Consort

Christmas Carols and Motets, Volume Three

4 CD set with original Vanguard Classics cover art, liner notes and lyric and included on a bonus CD-Rom.

300 years of Christmas music is celebrated in this collection. These recordings, collected on four CD's, are among the most popular and enduring recordings made by Alfred Deller and the Deller Consort. From familiar carols that everyone knows by heart yo anonymous 14th century motets, this music for the Christmas season is impeccably performed and filled with holiday spirit. The performances, mostly for voice with minimal accompaniment, have a timeless quality. The combination of high spirits and joy of the discs of carols and songs, matched with the solemnity present in the two discs of sacred motets, offer a fine holiday listening experience, as well as an additional testament to the exceptional talents of Alfred Deller and his fine Consort.
