Composed between 1850 and 1854, L'Enfance Du Christ was first performed under Berlioz's direction in 1854. As suggested by its subtitle, the work is in three parts; Herod's Dream; The Flight into Egypt; The Arrival at Sais, and is scored for seven solo voices, chorus and orchestra.

Unlike much of Berlioz's work, the music is restrained, lyrical, and delicate. This is an excellent edition at a moderate price, of a great masterpiece of sacred music.
