With 18 Christmas songs, the children's choir, representing one of Austria's major cultural exports, embarks on a musical journey through the centuries

The world's best-known boys' choir begins its close cooperation with Universal Music with a major Christmas album. With the likes of Rolando Villazón and Aida Garifullina, the Choir Boys have invited two stars of classical music to be their guests. And instrumental support is provided by the band WienerWunderAllerlei and the brass ensemble phil Blech Wien.


Several pieces from the repertoire traditionally sung on Christmas Eve, such as Fröhliche Weihnacht überall or Leise rieselt der Schnee by the German pastor Eduard Ebel, form the recording's core. These carols, well-known and cherished throughout the entire German-speaking world, are complemented by musical gems of Austrian origin.
