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

Dieses Programm als weihnachtliches zu bezeichnen würde gewiss zu kurz greifen. Zwar handelt es sich bei den Kompositionen irgendwie um Musik für dieses Fest, doch wird man diese auch gerne zu anderen Gelegenheiten hören. Dafür sorgen die frischen Stimmen des rein weiblichen Encantar-Ensembles und vor allem der anrührend schliche Gesang von Cécile Kempenaers. Das flandrische Flötenquartett zaubert auf all seinen abwechslungsreich eingesetzten und vor allem sehr unterschiedlichen Flöten einen schönen Kontrapunkt zu den Weisen all der singenden Engel.
