Mirabile Mysterium

CD info

The Christmas story and the powerful images evoked by the narration of the birth in the stable, the exotic appearance of the Magi from the Orient and the shepherds' bucolic visit have been a source to the world's imagination throughout history. The Huelgas Ensemble explores the fascinating and colourful repertoire by composers of five centuries reaching from the Franco-Flemish Renaissance polyphony to English Christmas Carols and Spanish Villancicos.
