Divided into two sections, "The Joy of Christmas" and "The Peace of Christmas," this recording offers a nice mix of a cappella and accompanied sections. Twenty-one carols, motets and oratorio choruses were chosen from the many seasonal favorites sung by The Cambridge singers, and by choirs all over the world. They are grouped in two contrasting sequences, drawing together music of many styles and sources. Two new carols are included, and several traditional items appear in fresh arrangements. ~ MusD, Rovi
