Puer natus est: Christmas Day Mass from Buckfast Abbey

The Choir of Buckfast Abbey presents music for the Mass of Christmas Day. Weaving between the Gregorian chant propers are George Malcolm’s evocative Missa ad Præsepe (Mass at the Crib), and traditional carols and festive motets. The much-loved hymn Adeste fideles opens the Mass, progressing from the original plainsong melody through to a dramatic new arrangement of the penultimate verse, epitomising the joy of the Incarnation.

★★★★  ‘We are called to the Mass with the processional Adeste fideles and, as the fine organ introduction comes to a conclusion, the sacristy bell rings, and the choir sing, we know we are in for a treat… This CD brings peace and harmony and conveys the true message of Christmas.’ (Organists’ Review)
