Celebrate a classical festive season with Deutsche Grammophon, and this beautiful 1-LP, pressed on 180gm vinyl at Pallas and presented with its original cover artwork.  Recorded in Summer 1966, this Christmas Album was the last studio recording of Fritz Wunderlich who tragically died in September 1966.  Originally released in November that same year, this album became a Christmas Classic for many people. 

Folk tunes such as "Maria durch ein Dornwald ging", "Es ist ein Ros’ entsprungen" or "Still, Still, Still" are interwoven in this recital with pieces by Tommaso Albinoni and Georg Philipp Telemann, which are performed just as clearly and truthfully under the baton of Fritz Neumeyer. In between, Will Quadflieg recites the Christmas story from the Gospel of Luke.

 “For many people, this album is as much a part of Christmas as the Christmas tree and candles.” — BARBARA WUNDERLICH (daughter of Fritz Wunderlich)

 “When I was on stage with my friend Fritz or in front of the microphone, those were the best moments of my singing career.” — HERMANN PREY
