Reviews

'A gloriously sung collection … captures the tranquil pastoral mood of Christmas Eve. The recording could hardly be bettered' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)

'Polyphony is superb … the most completely recommendable new issue for Christmas I've found so far' (The Independent on Sunday)

'The choir conveys Warlock's genius quite irresistibly. These are superlative performances, beautifully recorded. A first-rate production' (Organists' Review)
O Radix Iesse (‘O Root of Jesse’) is the antiphon for 19 December, intoned by the Almoner.
