Peter Schreier, tenor extraordinaire and one of the greatest singing interpreters of Bach of the 20th century, passed away on Christmas day last year. A date.

The late, great Jessye Norman, who passed away in September this year at the age of 74, is far from the only opera singer to release a Christmas album.
Whether strolling around stores or on your local seasonal radio station, it’s very likely that you’ll have heard easy listening Christmas music.
The concept of the “overproduced” record is an interesting one.
The fantastic thing about recording technology is that it allows us to travel in time.
