Notes & Reviews:

"There's no better way to get into the Christmas spirit than with this enchanting RVW disc, which contains some delightful rarities. OK, so there are the requisite number of carols, but nothing ever sounds hackneyed from Vaughan Williams. With glowing playing and singing under the baton of Richard Hickox, there's plenty for the head as well as the Christmas hearth." -Gramophone (Editor's Choice selection)
