Chilled fantastically to the very bone!, 19 Nov. 2009
If you want to listen to the predictable,forget it.If you want to fall in love with these haunting renditions first time around,you will probably be disappointed; It is unlikely to happen. However,if music of a way-off era - and we're talking centuries here,not decades - interests you and whets your musical appetite, I urge you to give it a whirl. It's beautiful,haunting,evocative and yes CHRISTMASSY (!)in a very traditional 'tudory' way .I know that it will add a very special something to the collections I enjoy at this time of year which are ,incidentally, totally diverse.I guess it won't be everyone's bag ,but give it a chance (or two); I think it could make you happy : It certainly succeeds with me.
All credit to you, Sting . Winter greetings!
