The best Christmas Album
Forget all the nasty, smaltzy, embarrassing Christmas compilations this is fresh and full of celebration without ever becoming predictably Chrissmassy. It is generally accepted that Rutter has re-invented the Carol as a musical form and here is a fantastic example of his best work showing an astonishing variety. There are also one or two favourites given a clean and crisp sound by The Cambridge Singers. Great listening.
This album is one of the sweetest albums you are likely to find and has everything - choir, orchestra and is really well performed. The tuning is excellent and the conducting really precise so the choir sounds really light and crisp. I would really recommend this for mums and dads whilst wrapping their Christmas presents for their children or anyone preparing the Christmas Roast on Christmas day - enjoy!
Rutter at His Genius, best!
John Rutter, is perhaps responsible for the recent upsurge in the UK's re-embrace of Choral singing, this album encapsulates all that is best of his ability to inject his own special blend of back of the neck hair raising ingenuity! A good buy, must have for any choral fan of this particular genre!
