Another Rutter Choral Triumph
Daniel G. Berk | West Bloomfield, Michigan | 09/21/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Once again, John Rutter works his choral magic with the Cambridge Singers and turns out another extraordinary collection of Christmas carols. All the popular ones are here, the only down side being that there are no carols composed by Rutter himself. There is one bonus, in effect, hearing the Rutter choral treatment applied to The Christmas Song by Mel Torme and Robert Wells. It's never sounded better."
Excellent choral music for the Christmas season

"A first rate disc with wonderful selections and beautiful singing. You can close your eyes and pretend as if you are in a cathedral listening the the choir."
Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without this one

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I love this CD. The voices are so pure and beautifully blended. Rutter's arrangements are brilliant. It's really hard to pick a favorite, but I do love "All My Heart This Night Rejoices." Absolutely wonderful! Anyone who appreciates good choral music should get this CD and make it part of your holidays."
