O Magnum Mysterium

Tom Manoff reviews O Magnum Mysterium, a collection of Christmas music from the Robert Shaw Festival Singers and the Robert Shaw Chamber Singers. Robert Shaw is considered one of the greatest arrangers of Christmas music, both traditional carols, and classical and Renaissance songs related to the sacred holiday. Shaw died nearly two years ago, and this collection features some of his favorite Christmas pieces. For lovers of Shaw, there are four tracks that have never been released before.
