Reviews

'This is a highly enjoyable and superbly performed Christmas collection. It respects the traditions of Christmas music but provides plenty of examples of how composers are developing that tradition in exciting ways' (MusicWeb International)
Some claim this traditional English carol tune is a variant of Greensleeves; at least 500 years old, it exists in many arrangements, one of the most successful in recent decades being that by Simon Preston, who for several years was a successor to William McKie as Organist and Choirmaster at Westminster Abbey.
