Notes & Reviews:

The richly fascinating history of the Christmas carol spans some nine centuries, from the 12th Century until today, bringing together courtly and popular words and music to contemplate and praise the Christ child. Acclaimed by The Guardian as ‘poignantly expressive’, soprano Monica Whicher joins one of the world’s foremost harp virtuosos and former Principal Harpist with the Toronto Symphony, Judy Loman, to interpret carols both old and new, beloved and unfamiliar, many in Ms Loman’s expert arrangements.

American Record Guide
There's something magical about the combination of a particularly sweet and accomplished soprano voice and the scintillating sonorities of a well-played harp. Naxos has blessed us here with an entire program of lullabies and carols that explore mostly the tender side of the season, interspersed by varied interludes for solo harp. ... I hung, wonder-struck, on every note and nuance the whole way through - and I think you will, too.
