Paul Hillier
Carols from the Old and New Worlds

Adam lay ibounden
The Cherry Tree Carol
Ding! Dong! Merrily on high
Dormi, dormi o bel bambin
Es ist ein Ros entsprungen
Gaudete, Christus est natus
Heissa Buama
Here we come a-wassailing
The Holly and the Ivy
Liebe Hirten / Andachtsjodler
Leise rieselt der Schnee
O come all ye faithful
O come, O come Emmanuel
Personent hodie
Remember O thou man
Rorate coeli
Still o Himmel
Still, still, still
We Three Kings
We wish you a merry Christmas

"These carol arrangements (together with a few original compositions) were made bit by bit over the past twenty years and first performed by whichever group I was working with at the time. Those groups have included Theatre of Voices, in both its Californian and now Scandinavian incarnations; the Pro Arte Singers of the Early Music Institute at Indiana University, Bloomington; Ars Nova Copenhagen; and most recently the National Chamber Choir of Ireland. I am indebted to all the singers involved, who thus unwittingly helped me prepare this collection, and equally to Robina Young and Brad Michel, who produced and engineered the four Christmas CDs I have made for Harmonia Mundi USA on which all the arrangements have appeared.

Carols from the Old and New Worlds is being issued in two separate parts. The second part will appear after a couple more Christmases and will focus primarily on the 'New World' of North America. This first part focuses on Europe, particularly the Alpine region where Germany and Italy meet Switzerland; most of the remaining pieces are English." - Paul Hillier
