Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The hymn Christe redemptor omnium is a poetic meditation on the Feast of Christmas in seven verses. The repertory of hymns for Divine Office is one of the most beautiful and seems to have generated wonderfully thoughtful and satisfying melodies from the chant writers. The falsobordone setting used here provides a stimulating juxtaposition and was written by Matthew Martin, the Assistant Master of Music at Westminster Cathedral.
