Album Remarks & Appraisals:
One of Germany's best-loved classical performers joins forces with a legendary close-harmony group for a winter-themed album to bring warmth to the dark months of the year: Albrecht Mayer & The King's Singers. The pairing of the world's most famous and accomplished oboist, with the UK's celebrated vocal ensemble The King's Singers is a heavenly musical partnership. The interplay of colors, melodies and harmonies between these performers enchant and delight in Baroque, classical and seasonal favorites. Mayer, the oboist with the magical tone, is renowned for the sublime singing quality of his playing. On Let It Snow the tone of his oboe blends magnificently with the silky sounds of a group that has been entertaining audiences across the globe since 1968. This specially chosen mixed-genre program is woven around the theme of winter: snow, ice, fireplaces, sleigh rides, Christmas and New Year's.

More cheese than a Wensleydale-and-cranberry sandwich, then, but it's all done with bags of panache and good humour - the perfect tree-dressing or present-wrapping soundtrack.
