Quadriga Consort's new album 'Winter's Delights' presents Early Christmas Music and Carols from the British Isles, France and Canada, building on the success of the first volume. The album consists of catchy melodies and rhythms played on historical instruments, including early music hits like 'Leanabh an Àigh', 'The First Nowell' and 'O Come, O Come, Emmanuel'. Leanabh an Àigh became world-famous by Cat Stevens as "Morning Has Broken" in 1971 on lyrics by Eleanor Farjeon. This is no ordinary Christmas album, but rather a winter album for all who get tired of conventional Christmas songs.
