A very special CD for Christmas is presented by Flanders Recorder Quartet together with the young Belgian vocal ensemble Encantar and soprano Cecile Kempenaers: Christmas music from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Traditional melodies as well as Gregorian chant, consort songs, and chorales: this early Christmas music rediates a lot of character and color, cheerfulness and contemplation.
The large recorders, practically a “living organ,” are the perfect partners for the singers. To be heard on this CD is the world's largest recorder, a 3-meter-long sub-contrabass.
This is the Flanders Recorder Quartet's fifth production for AEOLUS, and the CD debut of the four remarkable young singers of Encantar.

Anrührend... Das flandrische Flötenquartett zaubert (...) einen schönen Kontrapunkt zu den Weisen all der singenden Engel.
