"This was an unexpected and delightful Christmas present. I am not a great fan of the festive music offerings usually available most of which are stale and uninspiring but this was different.There are a few familiar items but these are generally well arranged in particular the opening track Adeste Fideles sung in its original Latin and sang beautifully by soloists and choir. Emma Kirkby, not surprisingly, steals the show but does not necessarily outshine all the others both singers and instrumentalists. Martin Neary as ever guides them all through in a sensite and professional way and it is a great pity that there will be no further collaboration with the Westminster Abbey forces he had guided so well for so long.Some of the material is not of great musical value but it is never less than melodic and mercifully free of the saccharine treatment this music can easily attract in the wrong hands. I recommend that this is played at any time of the year."
