A Choral Christmas is an album by German cross-cultural new-age band Cusco. It was released in 1995.


The album was produced in collaboration with the Munich Opera Choir. The tracks feature a fusion of slow vocal melodies with music of late Middle Ages and Renaissance, and instrumentally reflect on their previous Concierto de Aranjuez album from 1986. Unlike any other Cusco album, the choirs are predominant in most tracks, the exceptions being the instrumental "Canon" and "Swan Lake / The Nutcracker". This album was also released on the Prudence label under the title A Cusco Christmas.
