This has to be Chilcott's best yet. The new pieces, particularly The Shepherds Sing and What sweeter music, are glorious and I defy anyone not to be moved and uplifted by their soaring beauty. Chilcott has taken wonderful words and made them his own. This CD is the perfect accompaniament to Christmas. The man is a genius!

This collection of Chilcott's Christmas choral works is superbly sung by Commotio - Matthew Berry's highly accomplished choir. There is enormous variety in textures, helped by several instruments used to accompany the choir. The music is wonderful. Chilcott has the same melodic gifts as John Rutter but his harmonies are what mark him out as a great composer of choral music. This CD is very warmly recommended.

A must have for Christmas. Commotio sing with delicacy, power and passion, a beautiful recording, both choir and composers on top form. The last two tracks + silence as the disc ends puts life on hold. Totally stunning.

This album grabs me and won't let go. This is such a wonderful collection which is beautifully performed. Anyone in a choir needs to listen to this. Some of the songs are simply stunning, and the balance and harmonies are second to none. There are a number of premiere recordings on here too. A joy from start to finish.

Commotio sing Bob Chilcott's music with such delicacy and passion which is suits the music perfectly. The album is beautifully produced and contains many wonderful festive themed pices guaranteed to warm your heart this winter. A must buy for fans of Bob Chilcott or choral music in general.

Bob Chilcott is one of the go-to composers for most choirs at this time of year as his music lies so well on the voice and the ear. This collection is a mixture of a capella pieces, plus some accompanied by organ or mixed instrumental. The organ gets a fantastic work-out in Les Anges dans nos Campagne (what a tongue twister for the choir) and there are some excellent moments for the harp in th On Christmas Night sequence, plus beautiful solos from professional Soprano, Laurie Ashworth and from Tim Ambrose and Paul Thomas from the choir. This album is so chrismassy it's virtually clove studded.

Heard Hereford Cathedral Choir sing one of Chilcott's carols in 2012 - loved it. This Christmas they sang another as did King's Cambridge in their TV carol service - The Star Carol. Decided to look for a Christmas present for myself and found this download CD. Just love it to bits. Well understand the reviewer who said this CD "will not let them go".
Sung to perfection with such crisp diction and precise note placement - hence the title of my review.
Don't often review purchases but this one just cries out for it to encourage others to share the pleasure.
