Albinoni & Pachelbel - Musica da Camera - MusicWeb-International

There are several ways to obtain Corelli's Christmas Concerto, Op.6/8.  A Linn recording and download (, CKD012) offers it alongside the Pachelbel Canon and Fugue, Albinoni's Adagio (the spurious Giazotto arrangement) and Concerti Grossi by Handel (Op.3/2) and Vivaldi (Op.3/11) in performances by Musica da Camera/Robert King.  Recommended to those who don't want the complete Corelli Op.6 (but who wouldn't?) or would like an alternative - it's the kind of music which lends itself to a variety of interpretations and the one presented here is very attractive.  (Very good 320k mp3 or lossless versions.)
