CD Reviews

Beautiful Harmonies and Vocalizations
Rowen | Raritan, NJ USA | 12/12/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Like another reviewer, I am thrilled at Lo! He Comes, as well as with the unfamiliar setting for Hark the Herald Angels Sing and the beautiful Sing We the Virgin Mary.If you love beautiful vocalizations, especially rare soprano-alto harmonizations, this is the album for you."
A "top ten" Christmas album
M. J. Smith | Seattle, WA USA | 11/12/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If this album contained nothing but it's splendid rendition of Madan's Lo! He Comes, with Clouds Descending, the album would be worth owning. Fortunately, the entire album is a brillant mix of voices, instrumentals and performance styles; the resulting album can be played several times in successiion without becoming repetative - no small feat for a Christmas album.The album ranges from the 13th century Nuns of Chester to contemporary composers - Judith Weir - or nearly comtemporary - Britten, Holst ... with excellent sequencing so that no piece seems out of place.The instrumentation varies from the traditional organ with SATB choir to fiddle, flute, concertina and cello. This provides the variety that makes the album so listenable.For traditional Christmas music this album is a must."
Superb Choral Christmas Music
W. D. Jamieson | Halifax, NS, Canada | 01/19/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Andrew Parrott, and the Taverner Concert and Choir have done it again !

This is a superb collection of traditional music from the past, some of it familiar, some not so well known, all performed so very well."
