Notes & Reviews:

This musical advent calendar from Oxford's leading mixed-voice collegiate choir is their second release on the Stone Records label, following their highly successful recording of Duruflé's Requiem and Milford's Mass. This beautifully presented disc contains a "Christmas countdown" of 24 tracks (with a bonus track for the day itself), featuring wonderful performances of some of the best-loved carols of all time.
