CMAS-002FL (STEREO) - A Baroque Christmas Pastorale: Music of Corelli, Manfredini, Pez, and Tartini - Collegium Aureum on original instruments - The four compositions played by the Collegium Aureum on this recording owe their existence to the Italian tradition of performing instrumental music in conjunction with the Mass, and are examples of the sort of music heard at Christmas time. All of these pieces emphasis the role of the shepherds in the story of the Nativity. This CD is derived from a Harmonia Mundi disc from 1966, recorded at Cedernsaal Schloss Kirchhiem, and performed on original instruments. A beautifully-played disc that will bring joy at any time of year.
