Notes & Reviews:

Dame Felicity Lott and the Joyful Company of Singers serve up rich Christmas fayre with 'Plum Pudding', well-spiced with favourite carols and readings by actor Gabriel Woolf.

Re-issued on Champs Hill Records due to popular demand, the CD was originally recorded in the Music Room at Champs Hill. Opening with Vaughan Williams' arrangement of a medieval Wassail and interspersed with music ranging from Byrd to Barber, the CD is an intimate, welcoming collection, full of the joys of Christmas.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Champs Hill, West Sussex, England (11/30/2002).
