Noels & Carols From The Olde World – Apollo’s Fire

Noels & Carols From The Olde World – Apollo’s Fire

This one is new to my collection this year. I recently discovered this amazing early music ensemble. Of the many musical pursuits Angie and I had in music school, participating in our Collegium Musicum – the early music ensemble – was one of the highlights. She played recorder and early winds and I played on a 19 string, 10 course Renaissance lute. (Well, most of the time was spent tuning rather than actual playing but such is the life of lutenists and harpists.)

I LOVE this recording. These renderings absolutely cook. Precise. The vocals pristine. This might represent something a little different to the modern ear. Yet, there is no better discovery of this early music genre that can be had than in these familiar and not so familiar Christmas offerings. Treat yourself to something different.
