L'Enfance du Christ

on BBC Radio 3

Berlioz's depiction of Christ's childhood is one of his most restrained and touching works. The three tableaux, set to Berlioz's own libretto, focus on three images of Epiphany: Herod's dream, the flight of the Holy Family to Egypt and their acceptance by the Ishmaelites.
