Let's head back to my other favorite holiday music album, Christmas Goes Baroque, with popular Christmas songs superbly arranged and conducted by Peter Breiner in the Baroque style, sounding as if they were written in the 18th century. Actually, this particular selection is from the album's sequel, quite-appropriately named Christmas Goes Baroque II.
This is one of the more fascinating songs on the two albums, perhaps my favorite for its cleverness and artistry. Breiner takes one of the most-famous Christmas songs ever, Irving Berlin's "White Christmas," and arranges it to somehow almost-magically sound like one of the most-famous pieces of music from the Baroque era -- Bach's Air on a G-String. And it all fits beautifully, performed wonderfully by the Nicolaus Esterhzy Sinfonia.
If you like either of these albums, you can find them here.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
