A very inexpensive box exclusively released by JPC de. Seven CD'S with Christmas music, vocal and instrumental. Performed by a lot of different ensembles. Meaning that although the music is beautiful, the performances on this first CD go from mediocre to very good, and all what is in between. Same goes for the recordings. That said, for around 20 euros this is a super bargain, as long as you do not expect top quality.
