The second volume in Larry Shackley's ongoing series of carols from around the world explores the rich heritage of France. This collection spans many centuries, and contains some of the best-known French carols (Ding-Dong! Merrily on High · Bring a Torch · He is Born · March of the Kings). But you may find yourself equally drawn to more unexplored Noels, such as the haunting melodies of What is that Lovely Fragrance? · and Sleep, My Dove. Lush harmonies and a wide variety of textures make these arrangements a joy to play and entrancing to hear.
