Peter Schreier sings Christmas Carols
Peter Schreier's recordings are almost legendary. Now the recording "Peter Schreier singt Weihnachtslieder", released in 1975, has been lavishly restored and for the first time released on CD and digital by Berlin Classics.
"O du fröhliche", "Maria durch ein' Dornwald ging", "Kommet, ihr Hirten" – together with the Thomanerchor Leipzig the tenor Peter Schreier sang some of the most famous Christmas songs. The vocal team was accompanied by the Staatskapelle Dresden and Hans-Joachim Rotzsch. It is really festive with classics like "O du fröhliche", "Stille Nacht" and "Vom Himmel hoch", which round off the program wonderfully.
The 20 titles of the recording are not only an excellent companion for the upcoming holidays. At the same time, it is a testimony to Peter Schreier's art of singing. In addition, the Dresden Staatskapelle, one of the most renowned orchestras in the world, shines at his side. The Thomanerchor Leipzig shows the musical brilliance of an 800-year-old choral tradition.
"Peter Schreier singt Weihnachtslieder" is your perfect companion through the Advent and Christmas season and now available in all known shops!
