A perfect atmosphere for Christmas
on 15 January 2010
This is a very special record indeed. I'd been looking for some music to play over Christmas which was more English than the usual Christmas carol CDs and more traditional than the Slade/Wizard stuff. This fits the bill perfectly. A collection of early English Christmas songs and carols arranged and sung to perfection accompanied by traditional instruments. Some are choral and some are sung solo but the overall effect is to create a marvellous English Christmas atmosphere in the room. You can listen to it on many levels. It is a beautiful piece of atmospheric Christmas backgound music but it also stands up as a glorious collection of early English songs.Sometimes joyful, always moving, this should appeal to those like ambient and folk music as well as those looking for a more classical Christmas.
