I first came across this recording when my father bought it on vinyl. It was in danger of being the first record I had ever worn out, so I bought another copy as soon as I saw it was available on CD some years ago.
It is a winning combination of a top-class brass band and choir. The musical arrangements are wonderful, as are the performances, especially that of the band; crisp, clear, precise and accurate, yet played with soul and sensitivity. The choir, too, bring much feeling to their contributions. My particular favourites are the Christmas Festival overture, For Unto Us and the finale, Christmas Fantasy.
If you like brass bands and choirs, you must have this recording in your collection. And if it doesn't put you in the proper spirit of Christmas and open up the season's true meaning to you, then I fear you are in need of a spirits' visitation!

A great CD for Christmas. I love the mix of sounds, the organ, the strong and robust Black Dyke Mills Brass Band playing alongside the wonderful Huddersfield Choral Society Choir whose skill in creating a strong and earthy xmas carol, alongside the classical, spiritual, heavenly and traditional song makes for a varied, enjoyable and uplifting CD.

Lovely, traditional music for a great Xmas sound. The brass band accompaniment to the Huddersfield Choral Society gives it a nice, homey Yorkshire feel.
