Everyday Rather Live in Classic Eras

Naxos announced a new Advent Calendar App of Christmas

Naxos has announced a new Advent Calendar App, set to launch in December. The App will be free to download worldwide on iOS and Android devices through iTunes and Google Play from December. Like the Young Person’s Guide to the OrchestraApp, introduced by the Britten-Pears foundation earlier this year, the Naxos App is free to download and features 25 complete tracks behind the numbered doors. Each day, a new door can be ‘unlocked’ to reveal a piece of seasonal music from Naxos’s classical music catalogue. Tracks feature performances of undiscovered works, Christmas carols and instrumental pieces, including ‘Ding, dong, merrily on high’ and ‘In dulci jubilo’ performed by the Worcester Cathedral Choir, ‘Gloria in excelsis Deo’ from Vivaldi’s Gloria performed by Schola Cantorum Oxford and the Northern Chamber Orchestra, Mozart’s ‘Sleigh Ride’ from his Three German Dancesperformed by Capella Istropolitana, and ‘Glory to God in the highest’ from Handel’s Messiahperformed by the Choir of New College Oxford and the Academy of Ancient Music.
