"A sublime Gloria by Sheppard ... and, finest of all, Byrd's Lullaby in a masterly performance."

Christus Natus Est - An Early English Christmas
Hodie - An English Christmas Collection
A Traditional Christmas Carol Collection - Well-known and well-loved arrangements

A medley of carols ranging from the demure to the rustic; a simple expression of joy and wonder. Some have an element of dance in them, including some of the 'Devil's best tunes given back to God' in the form of carols. A collection of appropriate medieval instruments, including fiddles, harps, lutes and drums, accompanies the singers.
