Notes & Reviews:

One of the most famous choirs in the world for hymn singing join forces with Owain Arwel Hughes who's name is synonymous with large scale choral singing.

Ralph Vaughan Williams had a supreme gift for melody and harmonizing folk tunes and these talents are brought together in this unique compilation.

A spirited performance of these stirring Christmas favorites!
