Sleep, Holy Babe is a collection of Christmas lullabies which reflect the old traditions and restful, contemplative nature of the nativity story. Some works date back as far as the sixteenth century, such as Richard Pygott’s Quid petis, O Fili? from a collection owned by Henry VIII. Others are freshly composed, and many, such as Gerald Finzi’s A Lullaby, are recorded here for the first time.

The Telegraph

9th December 2011

“The vocal ensemble Blossom Street has cast its net wide to find a broad spectrum of lullabies ranging from a 16th-century O Emanuel to a modern setting by Daniel Burges of the words of the Coventry Carol, together with other contemporary treatments of sacred or soothing texts, sensitively sung.”

MusicWeb International

November 2012

“The performances on this disc enchant, though they lack the high gloss of some choirs. This can be an advantage and makes the singing more intimate and personal, provided you don’t expect them to strive for the ultimate perfection. The music is well chosen and makes an interesting and enlivening programme.”
