Another delightful disc in this box. Filled with Christmas music and performed by names in the trade. I do not enjoy some of the sopranos on this disc, to know Monika Mauch, with the annoying habit of adding unnatural vibrato, Greta de Reyghere, who lets out at occassion some shrill tones that hurt my ears, and Kathelijne van Laethem who does pretty much the same. Not much they disturb, but you should know before buying the box. Foccroulle plays some lovely music from Heinrich Scheidemann, that was a treat! The sound quality varies a bit, but is mostly good.

Unfortunately Volume I of Graupner is missing in that list. It is OOP. The prices paid on Amazon are ridiculous.
