"The Aulos Ensemble have produced in this recording one of the most elegant and delightful collections of Christmas music to have graced my stereo system in some years. Beautifully programmed and masterfully played, this is a disc of rather constant delights."
"The suites showcase a generous diversity of styles and genres, introduced by the hauntingly sparse musettes and soaringly beautiful menuet from Les fêtes d'Hébé and concluding with the majestic chaconne and jubilant tambourins from Les Indes galantes. The performers exhibit a masterfully controlled sense of ensemble throughout, and their precisely articulated delivery breathes with Rameau's subtly dramatic phrasal undulations. The effect is exquisite."

"The quintet by JC Bach opens the program and it is enthralling. The other chamber works are also joyously good. The sound is warm and the playing spirited and sensitive. There's no doubt that this is music you'll be eager to play or hear again."

"The members of the Aulos Ensemble understand these subtleties in Telemann better than any other group in my experience as a listener and reviewer. Immersing themselves in the Telemann style helps them bring out the distinguishing features that turn a simple dance or galanterie into a character piece. The Aulos musicians show us that the old boy really knew what he was doing!"
