Originally, a "Christmas carol" referred to a piece of vocal music in carol form whose lyrics centre on the theme of Christmas or the Christmas season. Many traditional Christmas carols focus on the Christian celebration of the birth of Jesus, while others celebrate the Twelve Days of Christmas that range from 25 December to 5 January.

A word that most likely takes us back to our childhood, a festive time veiled in mystery. A magical word evoking a plethora of colours, fragrances and tones. A time when perhaps everyone sings at least a few of the best-known carols, which have always been sung at home. The present album contains more than 80 minutes of music - the most beautiful Bohemian and Moravian carols, supplemented by old Christmas songs of other European nations. They have been given a singular sound by Miroslav Venhoda, an artist who has co-formed a new performance approach to Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque music. The most beautiful carols enhancing the festive Christmas atmosphere.

Christmas Night: Carols of the Nativity. The Cambridge Singers. At last, an album of Christmas music that includes nearly all the great old carols, beautifully arranged for choir, organ and orchestra, plus a few less well known but charming tunes. The recording quality is excellent and curling up with the CD in front of the fire during the season evokes wonderful English Christmas images.

Carols and Christmas music have always formed a part of The Cambridge Singers’ recorded repertoire, and this album picks out some of my personal favourites. Most of the 23 items are taken from the two albums Christmas with the Cambridge Singers and Christmas Day in the Morning, and there are four previously unreleased tracks which were squeezed out of those two albums and which I am happy to have found space for here. There are three strands to the programme: traditional carols; choruses and motets; and composers’ carols. In fact these categories are not as separate as they might appear.
