Reviews

'An extremely well-sung traditional carol collection. The concert makes a great appeal by the quality of the singing and the beautiful digital recording' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)

'A model of its kind' (The Times)

'Celestial' (San Francisco Examiner)
Away in a manger is one of the most popular of all the carols sung in the United Kingdom, yet both the words and the music are American, the words traditional, the music by William James Kirkpatrick (1838–1921). The descant to the final verse is by Philip Moore.

from notes by Wadham Sutton 1993
