With "Stille Nacht - Advent mit den St. Florianer Sängerknaben" the Austrian choir presents a very nice selection of music for the Christmas season. This is not the ordinary Christmas album but a setting of lesser known pieces and new arrangements of traditionals, also featuring some nice treble solos.
Chichester Cathedral Choir
"Carols from Chichester Cathedral" is one of the best albums of Christmas carols by a British choir I have heard in recent years. Many of the pieces are well known but sung with devotion. Half of the pieces feature soloists. The album is well balanced and spreads a mood of peace, expectations and happiness.
Ealing Abbey Choir
The traditional Abbey Choir of men and boys is presenting a fine range of music for Christmas from different ages on "Personent Hodie". Listening to this album is like a musical meditation trough the times from medieval chant, Guerrero and Bach to contemporary composers.
"Laudate Pueri" is the concluding album by boy sopranoLorin Wey. Together with his brother Terry Wey and the Clemencic Consort he performs different pieces of the baroque era. A very nice album, which was recorded in the Hofburgkapelle in Vienna.
"Davon ich singen und sagen will", a recording from 1978, then on LP finally made it onto CD.
This choir was trained and conducted by a former chorister of the Regensburger Domspatzen for 12 years. The soloists on this recording reflect his heritage.

Terry Wey / O holy night
Terry's second solo album as a boy soprano was recorded in 1998 subsequent to his successful career at the Vienna Boys Choir. A Christmas album partially containing very nice recordings. Upon many requests the record company made a new pressing and this album available again.
Terry Wey / Soprano Alto Tenore
Even after his voice change Terry delights his audience with his third solo album on which he performs G. F. Händel together with the Consortium Manicale Viennensis. Terry's huge voice range is just breathtaking and his lively performance of a precision which is impressive.
"Weihnachten mit den Wiltener Sängerknaben" from Austria is a treat in comparison to many other Christmas music albums. A nice music selection, appropriate instrumentation and the exquisite treble soloists make this album a joy to listen to.
"Der Stern von Bethlehem". The choristers of the Cathedral to Limburg and two soloists performed J. G. Rheinberger's Christmas cantata for soli, choir and orchestra live in concert. This recording from 1993 is a convincing example of the qualities of this fine German Cathedral choir.
W. A. Mozart's Missa in C "Credo-Messe" and other works of sacred music by him performed by the Limburger Domsingknaben and renowned soloists such as Thomas Quasthoff.
Etienne Pannard / Etienne 2011
Etienne enjoys singing. That is why he joined the Boys Choir of the Vienna Woods and later the Vienna Boys Choir, with which he toured many countries all over the world.
This is his first solo album, recorded at the age of 14, as a mezzo soprano.
"Die Thomaner im 19. Jahrhundert" represents a selection of works by composers, who were either cantors at St. Thomas or whose then contemporary works were sung by the St. Thomas's Boys Choir in the 19th century. It documents the high musical standards the choir kept up in that difficult period of change.
