Following its award-winning Christmas album, Sleep, Holy Babe (Naxos 8572868), Blossom Street explores a wide-ranging sequence of British folk song settings for choir, with a particular focus on the nautical. The repertoire embraces pioneers in the rediscovery and arrangement of folk songs such as Vaughan Williams, Grainger and Warlock, adds little-known gems by Holst and Bairstow, and also introduces vibrant new additions to the repertoire from contemporary composers, including James MacMillan and Judith Bingham and the conductor herself.

Sleep, Holy Babe (8572868), Blossom Street’s last album with Naxos, was selected as one of ClassicFM’s Christmas CDs of the Year.

Gramophone Magazine

Awards Issue 2013

“It is some indication of the quality of the 23 singers in Blossom Street that all the solos are outstanding, pure and true...It adds to the value of the disc that full texts are provided, and the recording is excellent, vivid and immediate with a nice feeling of atmosphere.”

MusicWeb International

“The singing of Blossom Street gives much pleasure. The choir numbers 23 (6/5/6/6) and the sound is consistently fresh and well-balanced...It makes for enjoyable listening.”
