Incarnation – Copenhagen Royal Chapel Choir, Gabrieli Consort, Paul McCreesh

An inspiring sequence of Christmas pieces ancient and modern, culminating in Britten’s virtuosic choral masterpiece, A Boy Was Born. Paul McCreesh leads the Gabrieli Consort (joined by the trebles of the Copenhagen Royal Chapel Choir) in this evocative and contrasting collection of festive works that samples music from the twelfth century to the present day.

"... A wonderful Christmas offering ..."

Terry Blain - BBC Music magazine - Christmas 2013


"The latest of Paul McCreesh’s projects with the Gabrieli Consort, Incarnation, offers his distinctive take on a Christmas album, with Renaissance hymnody eschewed in favour of a blend of Ancient and Modern, in which recent carols like Jonathan Dove’s polyphonic setting of Dorothy L Sayers’ "The Three Kings" are set alongside medieval texts, climaxing in Britten’s multi-section suite A Boy Was Born. It’s done in austere manner, with no fashionable drones or tintinnabulation blurring the edges: instead, unison vocals present "Veni, Veni Emanuel" as simply as possible, while a solo alto renders "Lullay, Lullay" as a lilting line that develops hypnotic power through church reverb."

Andy Gill - The Independent - 4 October 2013
