Album Review

The darling of the English folk scene follows up her 2010 effort Make the Light with this, her second album of Christmas-inspired songs. Universally-known hymns sit alongside other carols and songs peculiar to her native Yorkshire, all of them presented in Rusby's acclaimed lush acoustic style and graceful, gorgeous voice., Rovi

Customer Reviews


I only saw this album on iTunes on the 15th of november 2011 and I listend to all of the songs straight away. I saw that no one had rated yet so I thought I would be the first. I love Kate rusby what ever song. I like it when she writes new songs and makes new album. More nice music to listen to!

Lovely Album

I heard Kate for the first time last year and was hooked straight away, she has a wonderful sining voice and has a sound all of her own, sure some of what she sings are old but mixed with the new stuff that she writes it works very well. So for anyone who wants joy over Christmas I say you cant go wrong with a kate rusby!

Traditional Christmas songs, well arranged

This album won't be everyone's cup of tea, but if you like Kate Rusby then this collection of classic Christmas songs won't disappoint.

The instrumental arrangements blend beautifully with Kate's distinctive singing tone.

This album is the perfect antidote to the "Best No 1 Xmas album.." or whatever that standard collection of high street shopping dross is called this year!
