The CD Singing Christmas is a compilation of vocal and instrumental compositions by Jos Wuytack, which have been earlier released in Belgium and France. It contains the gregorian antiphone Hodie Christus natus est, seven carols from different countries and two original pieces, for choir and Orff instruments. In the Flemish cantata De Geboorte van de Heer Jezus (The birth of the Lord Jesus), the timbres of classical instruments and Orff instruments, are skilfully mastered by the composer, adding particular interest to this cantata.

All pieces are performed in their original languages. The quality of these interpretations deserves to be mentioned, considering that the performers are children and young music students.
