Resonus Classics is proud to release an album featuring world premiere recordings of contemporary Christmas carols from the latter half of the twentieth-century and the beginning of the twenty-first, performed by The Choir of Worcester College, Oxford under the direction of Stephen Farr.

The album includes a world premiere recording by Hafliði Hallgrímsson entitled Joseph and the Angel, which was written specially for this album. Also included are several world premiere recordings by leading composers including Peter Maxwell Davies, Mark-Anthony Turnage, Richard Allain, Matthew Martin, Gabriel Jackson, Judith Bingham, Cecilia McDowall and Thomas Hyde.

Other works include Anthony Piccolo’s I look from afar, John McCabe’s Mary laid her child, Malcolm Williamson’s This Christmas Night, Geoffrey Bush’s ‘Twas in the year that King Uzziah died, Elisabeth Lutyens’s Nativity, Edmund Rubbra’s Let us securely enter and two works by Kenneth Leighton, O leave your sheep and Veni Redemptor – A Celebration.

 "... delivered with captivating charm, considerable beauty of sound and unfussy clarity of detail. In addition to drawing some immensely lovely singing from the 23 voices of his Worcester College choir, Stephen Farr adds further distinction to the disc through some robust performances of organ solos by Leighton and Thomas Hyde. All captured in a rich recording ..."

Marc Rochester - Gramophone magazine - Christmas Special edition - December 2012


"...Truly admirable performances throughout ... this collection is very strongly recommended. Let us hope it receives the wide circulation it deserves."

Robert Matthew-Walker - International Record Review - December 2012


                 Christmas Chamber Choice
Performance *****      Recording *****

"... a wonderful collection of carols from the last half century ... Stephen Farr directs delectably sensitive performances, and the sound is immaculate..."
 

Terry Blain - BBC Music magazine - Christmas 2012


"...they acquit themselves well in a varied programme devoted to music by recent and contemporary composers. Like Resonus’s Christmas offering last year, this is sufficiently different not to get lost in the welter of seasonal recordings.’
