Notes & Reviews:

Christmas favorites presented with an amazing blend of velvet and virtuosity! Conductor Geoffrey Simon and arranger Daryl Runswick combine Cala's "London Sound" series concept with the sonorous warmth of twenty-four cellos plus the remarkable voices of the internationally acclaimed Choir of Clare College, Cambridge in a program of English and American seasonal favorites. "[A] feat as logically and technically astonishing as it is musically satisfying." -CD Review
