Since 1071, the St. Florianer Sängerknaben (St. Florian Boys' Choir) has been one of the most traditional of the renowned boys' choirs in Europe, to which Anton Bruckner belonged at the time. For centuries, one of the core tasks of the choir has been to provide music for the church services at St. Florian's Abbey in Linz, but today the boys also give concerts all over the world, always with overwhelming success. The album with well-known, but also lesser-known international Christmas carols contains recordings with their long-time director Franz Farnberger, which were made between 1998 and 2021 and thus vividly document the consistently high level of this boys' choir.
