Notes & Reviews:

Formed 900 years ago, the St. Paul's Cathedral Choir - one of the world's most celebrated cathedral choirs - makes its debut on Decca with an album of traditional and brand new festive carols from the heart of London, under the direction of Andrew Carwood. Old and new sit side by side as classic carols in famous arrangements rub shoulders with new works, such as Philip Stopford's beautiful setting of the 16th Century "Lully Lulla Lullay" and Graham Jordan Ellis's captivating "There Is No Rose."
