    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    Spendid Christmas Music!

    This CD is an oasis of calm for those who have a hectic time at Christmas. An hour listening to Rutters compositions and arrangements, which have glorious, yet subtle harmonies, which are sung simply and unfussily, allows quiet reflection on the true meaning of christmas for the individual, be that sacred or secular.

    1 starNo starNo starNo starNo star    very disappointing

    Probably due to a very poor recording so much of the CD is such low volume it is hard to hear without turning the volume up very high: this then distorts the louder pieces and some rise rapidly.
    Not the most memorable compositions or versions of famous carols and a real disappointment compared his most beautiful carols.
    I recommend buying another of his albums and giving this one a miss.

    1 star1 star1 star1 starNo star    Enjoyable Christmas froth.

    If you are looking for a deep and meaningful Christmas album, this is not for you. On the other hand, if you want an enjoyable light choral soundtrack for the festive season, this is ideal. Many of the carols included are familiar favourites, but with harps and flutes and bells lifting them far above usual choir-and-organ fare that gets served up by the record companies this time of year. I dare you not to smile at "I saw three ships", or to fail to feel wistful towards the end of "The holly and the ivy". Quieter moments offer a touch of variety - the unusual inclusion of Poston's "Jesus Christ the apple tree" is a particular pleasure. The overwhelming brightness of it all may be too much for some listeners, but this for me is great music to dress the tree to. A pleasure from start to finish.
