Megan Henderson and her fine band of singers and instrumentalists whisk us back to Renaissance Venice for Christmas festivities. Alongside the work of Venetian-born composers, there's music y musicians who visited or settled in the city. Various types of early guitar are joined by a host of wind and brass instruments to make for some lovely sounds and textures. The Revels Children's Chorus sings with an abandon, fervor and infectious enthusiasm that brings a smile to our faces.
