Christmas quiz: how many did you guess correctly...?

Here are the answers to our Christmas quiz:
  1. Stravinsky: The Rite of Spring.
  2. Berlioz: Shepherds Farewell from L'enfance du Christ.
  3. Bach: Christmas Oratorio.
  4. Rimsky-Korsakov: Christmas Eve.
  5. Tchaikovsky: The Nutcracker.
The pieces were all Christmas-themed apart from The Rite of Spring.

Although lots of people guessed 3 or 4 of the pieces correctly, only 1 person managed to identify all 5. Congratulations to Oxford music undergraduate Tim Anderson! Your (edible) prize awaits you in the Bodleian Music Faculty Library. 

Wishing everybody a Happy New Year, and thanks for playing along!
