Notes & Reviews:

This is a classic 1965 recording of Vaughan Williams Hodie, a touching and ebullient seasonal masterpiece written late in the composers life. The perennial Christmas favorite, 'Fantasia on Christmas Carols', is a wonderful perusal of favorite carol tunes arranged for baritone, chorus and orchestra and makes for a perfect coupling. These recordings have been digitally remastered at Abbey Road using the very latest in technology!
