This is the perfect video for Christmas. Aled Jones accompanied by the wondefully talented and refreshing boys choir, Libera, sing their way through a selection of Christmas Carols while Aled also takes us around many of the locations behind the songs. It's Festive, it's informative, it's entertaining and it's fun. Put your feet up, slip this into the DVD player and enjoy a taste of the real Spirit of Christmas.

This DVD delivers what it promises, and more.

Aled Jones travels to far distant places around the world, to source the origins of some of our favourite Christmas Carols. Interspersed at strategic points within the documentary are vocal performances by Aled himself, Libera and The Adventist Vocal Ensemble.

The venue (St Bartholomew the Great, City of London) provides a dramatic backdrop and sets an authentic stage for the carols. The lighting, production and filming was of an exceptional standard. The behind the Scenes extra revealed over 2,500 candles were lit; most of these guided an atmospheric walkway the length of the floor for the Libera boys to walk down towards the high altar as they were singing holding candles of their own.

A particular delight for me was the inclusion of the world-renowned boys choir Libera, who got to perform two carols (Gaudete and While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks by Night) on their own. Liam (Connery) performed a stunning solo opening to `Gaudete'; Josh (Madine) a sweet and angelic solo beginning too `Once in Royal David's City', and Ben (Philipp) was confident and faultless with his solo contribution during `While Shepherds Watched their Flocks by Night'.

Libera also assisted Aled on most of his carols, and the collaboration of Aled's strong tenor voice with the ethereal treble voices of the choir worked like a dream. The inclusion of the full choir added further weight to the soaring harmonies and spine tingling descants as most of the carols reached their climatic conclusion.

The Adventist Vocal Ensemble gave an uplifting and unique rendition of Mary's Boy Child. I will be sure to find more about them in the future.

All in all a thoroughly enjoyable and feel good factor festive music DVD, that would stand proud at the front of anyone's Christmas music collection.

Aled has been part of our Christmas for so many years now - which belies his age. But we were so lucky to know his voice when he was so young and so talented.

Now we have the man. Always charming, beautifully spoken and the singing voice that sings to my soul.

Enjoy this dvd as part of a magical journey with a trusted friend. It is both spiritual and uplifting.

And gives us a true flavour of Christmas.

This DVD is a bargain for any Libera fan. Not only do they get to enjoy the talents of Aled, and the beautiful scenes across the world but they see a lot of the work of Libera and the behind the scenes bit shows you the fidgety, natural reality of these talented boys.

Alad Jones has made a wonderful and informative video about Christmas Carols. His guest singing groups, The Adventist Vocal Ensemble and Libera, added to his beautiful voice in a magnificent way! It was the best Christmas event of the season, for me. Will be played over & over again each Christmas...and during the year too! Fred

Excellent - the singing, the background material, the traditional carols.
The singing is clear and easy to follow - the young boys' voices complement Aled's very well.
This was bought for my elderly mother - she will love it. It is particularly good for her that the places Aled visits are on the screen in a title form before we see him there; it ties it all together neatly.
I am so impressed that I am considering buying another copy for myself.
