Calmus Christmas Carols is an anthology of thirteen challenging, mostly five-part settings (SSATB) for choirs and ensembles. In the production of its successful CD Calmus Christmas Carols (Carus 83.432), the Calmus Ensemble Leipzig set out to present well-known melodies in a fresh, colorful garb, thus bathing them in a new, charming light for the enjoyment of both singers and listeners. These arrangements are now being published as a volume of sheet music for choir. They make use of structures of both serious and popular music from various epochs. They are delightful and surprising at the same time.
