Notes & Reviews:

There are few choirs around today who can match the unbridled excellence of the Choir of Trinity College, Cambridge. On this new album are fantastic carols both old and new. These astonishingly fresh arrangements add up to twenty-one tracks of pure festive holiday indulgence.

BBC Music Magazine, December 2015
All the popular selections... sound notably relaxed and idiomatic, the choir's stylistic versatility confidently demonstrated.
