Sultry seduction surfaces in Susan Gritton’s reading of Alessandro Scarlatti’s ‘Cantata for the Birth of Our Lord’. Collegium Musicum 90 and Simon Standage are also on seductive form in famous ‘Christmas’ concertos by Vivaldi, Manfredini and Corelli
Classic FM Magazine

This is a delightful addition to the Christmas market, and the careful selection of its items and superb recording ensure that, like the traditional puppy, it’s not just for Christmas
Classic CD on its original release

I enjoyed this re-release (which I somehow missed first time around) very much. The most unexpected piece is a lovely Christmas cantata by Telemann – CM90 have been such champions of Mr T’s orchestral output, it’s a pity we have not heard more church music from them. Susan Gritton is the first-rate soloists in Alessandro Scarlatti’s perfect gem of a cantata for Christmas night – beautifully accompanied too
Early Music Review

This is period-instrument performance at its best
