Advent Music: “Legends of St Nicholas”

I suppose I could have posted this a week ago Thursday. But the observance of Saint Nicholas is entwined with Advent and Christmas both, so I’m sure it’s not that much of a problem to suggest giving Anonymous 4 a listen for their disc, Legends of St Nicholas. They seem to have many selections from other recordings available for a quick listen on YouTube, but nothing at all from this disk.

This collection includes a variety of forms: plainchant, songs, and very early polyphony rendering liturgical texts, including a few readings from the legendary traditions of the bishop of Myra.
