Notes & Reviews:

'Polyphony is superb ... the most completely recommendable new issue for Christmas I've found so far' (The Independent on Sunday)

'A gloriously sung collection ... captures the tranquil pastoral mood of Christmas Eve. The recording could hardly be bettered' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)

'The choir conveys Warlock's genius quite irresistibly. These are superlative performances, beautifully recorded. A first-rate production' (Organists' Review)
