Notes & Reviews:

This two-disc set from the esteemed Cambridge-based Trinity College Choir collects 28 festive holiday standards and hymns, from "Hark the Herald Angels Sing" and "Silent Night" to "In Dulci Jubilo" and "O Little One Sweet (O Jesulein Süss)". Conducted by Richard Marlow, The Great British Carol Collection is a warm, reverent, and flawlessly executed set of choral Christmas gems that would pair well with a mug of mulled wine and a roaring fire. ~ James Christopher Monger
