CD Review: Piccola Banda di Cornamuse

By:

Piccola Banda di Cornamuse is a band of 11 musicians from Italy. This is their seasonal Christmas offering. It is undoubtedly a Christmas album, but one that has been wonderfully put together and deserves to be played at any time of the year. Although most of the tracks are about the birth of Christ, it is definitely not an album of Christmas carols. The first track, La Passion/Les trots Anges, opens deliciously with solo musette and organ playing a tune from Bourbonnais in France.
