Dame Felicity Lott and the Joyful Company of Singers serve up rich Christmas fayre with ’Plum Pudding’, well-spiced with favourite carols and readings by actor gabriel Woolf.

Re-issued on Champs Hill Records due to popular demand, the CD was originally recorded in the Music Room at Champs Hill.

Opening with Vaughan Williams’ arrangement of a medieval Wassail and interspersed with music ranging from Byrd to Barber, the CD is an intimate welcoming collection, full of the joys of Christmas.


"...the programme has been compiled with rare intelligence." - Musicweb-international

"...The format is what makes it [the album] original: choral works from William Byrd to Samuel Barber, almost all of a truly religious nature and beautifully sung by the Joyful Company of Singers, are interspersed with readings, some jolly and some not, by the deligtful Gabriel Woolf, a man of a thousand voices. The result is like listening to a radio pageant, meant to be heard in a single sitting rather than piecemeal. So light some candles, pour yourself some eggnog, then sit by the fire while listening to Plum Pudding. You’ll enjoy an hour of genuine Christmas cheer quite unlike any other."
