"If you’re looking for something different for Christmas than the usual carols in the usual arrangements and harmonizations, here is a real find... The performances are up to the high standard set by The King’s Singer’s, and the sound is excellent."
Robert A Moore - American Record Guide - November/December 2012
"Joy to the World is an ecelectic collection, with accomplished versions of pieces by Bach, Tchaikovsky and Saint-Saens interspersed with folksier material ..." ****
Andy Gill - The Independent - 23 December 2011
"The King’s Singers bring their rich butterscotch sound to Christmas with this selection of festive works recorded live at Cadogan hall. The programme brims with originality and inventiveness across the board, and a sense of humour that stops the seasonal standards from being too kitsch." ****
James Waygood - Classical Music (Choral 2012) magazine
"...this is an eminently enjoyable release that will please fans of The King’s Singers and lovers of Christmas music alike."

Performance **** Recording ****
"...The repertoire here is mainly traditional, arranged for six voices. Stand-out moments include Tchaikovsky’s thoughtful The Crown of Roses. Lawson’s gentle Lullay my Liking and Pieront’s hyperactivally jolly Jingle Bells, which they whizz through as though the words ’technically challenging had vanished from the dictionary."
Terry Blain - BBC Music Magazine - Christmas 2011
