This CD is a bit like a Christmas stocking. You don’t know what you’re going to find inside it; some of the contents you’ll love and of some you may think "I wish I’d been given something else". There are several tracks that require a rather sweet musical tooth but there are a good few delights, which balance them out. One thing’s for sure, you won’t be able to fault the standard of performance. If the programme appeals, then have yourself a merry little Christmas with John Rutter.
