This review is from: Christmas at St John's Cambridge (Audio CD)
This recording is sublime.
The choir under David Hill sing with such precision and beauty throughout, a pleasure to the ears.
This is not the usual carol album, but a thoughtful meditation on the Christmas story.
Highlights include a curiously controlled Vox Dicentis Clama by Naylor, and a rendition of Howells "A Spotless Rose" that defies description. Just beautiful, balanced singing.
St Johns manage to make the hymns of interest, and Warlock's "Bethlehem Down " is a joy.
The blend of the voices is something most choir conductors could only dream about. I urge you to buy this lovely recording.
