CD Reviews

Excellent folk music of the season
M. J. Smith | Seattle, WA USA | 11/13/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The subtitle says it all: A Revels Celebration of the Winter Solstice - carols, processionals, ritual & dance. As in all the Revels albums, the sheer joy in the music, dance and recitation comes through; the performers are having fun and hope you do too.The performance includes well known carols (I Saw Three Ships, The First Nowell)mixed with early American music (Milford), traditional Latin pieces (Personent Hodie), pre-Christian customs (Jolly Old Hawk) with dances and jigs.If you are looking for seasonal folk music, you'll not go wrong with this album - or any of the Revels."
Very Good...could have & should have been even better

"In my opinion Revels really set a high bar with their project 'Sing We Now of Christmas'. I expected as much from this one bit didn't quite find it. This project encompasses some great songs...well done in that aspect. In general its a great listen, but for this one thing: the brass ensemble was awesome, as was the Revels Chorus (as always), but depsite that some genius felt the need to augment them with a horrible keyboard synthesizer. 'Nowell', 'While Shephards Watch'd', and 'The Wexford Carol'-where the synth is especially massive - were great songs pretty much ruined by this untimely idea: the idiodic synth noise cranked to max volume a-la-UB40 pounds its way in and pushes out even the brass ensemble. (esp on 'Nowell'...what crap!) Definitely a studio mishap. Thankfully they turned the synth down on the other songs. The kids choir in this album is really young here - it is not the same Children's choir used in the wonderful project 'Sing We Now of Christmas'. They solo on a couple of songs with valiant energy, but really don't sound that great. This album is nice, but it doesn't reach the same heights of the aforementioned 'Sing We Now..' project. That said I would still recommend it for the many great songs within."
