Reviews

‘The performances are excellent throughout, singers and players all having the feel of the thing within them. The acoustic of the church at Salle in Norfolk is ideal, and Nicholas Parker’s production is both imaginative and unobtrusive … If you normally buy a record for Christmas, then I should think it’s pretty safe to say here is the one for this year. If you wouldn’t normally dream of buying a record for Christmas, well, you’ll just have to make an exception.’ Gramophone

‘For those who enjoy old English choral music, then this CD can become one of those you will have to listen to every christmas. This is one of mine.’ Customer review on Amazon.com
