​Catalogue no: DCD34152  

Price: £13.00 (including postage and packaging)

Originally commissioned by the BBC Music Magazine and used as the cover disc on the Christmas edition in 2011, this recording is a seasonal collection including carols by Caians Thomas Hewitt Jones and Peter Tranchell. 

'Superb sound, and singing burgeoning with colour and confidence' BBC Music Magazine

'This is a disc of proper Christmas repertoire, and is particularly astute in its programming as it also includes Webern's Dormi, Jesu - a piece that rarely appears in Christmas collections. Gramophone

'A satisfying and fresh package' Allmusic.com
