The Vasari Singers’ annual carol concerts always provide a warming blend of traditional favourites and less well-known music from all periods and styles. Here, joyous and masterful 16th-century polyphony sits alongside eternally popular Victorian carols, and exquisitely crafted settings by Howells and Walford Davies join works as recent as Gabriel Jackson’s The Christ-child. Bob Chilcott magically superimposes traditional carols with entrancing new material, and no Vasari Christmas would be complete without some close harmony Swingle singing. The Vasari Singers have also recorded Gabriel Jackson’s Requiem (8573049).

The Vasari Singers’ Great British Anthems [8572102] was described as “essential listening” by Gramophone. The mixture of moving beauty and entertaining good humour in this programme makes it a disc which is sure to appeal to a very wide audience this and every festive season.

Founded in 1980, Vasari Singers is among the leading chamber choirs in Britain, performing music ranging from Renaissance to contemporary. The choir performs regularly in London as well as visiting many of England’s cathedrals to sing services, with recent trips to Canterbury, Salisbury, Bath and Ripon. The choir and Jeremy Backhouse are deeply committed to contemporary music and have commissioned over twenty works since 2000, including works by Francis Pott and Gabriel Jackson.

“Rathbone's energetically bouncing arrangement of Gabriel's Message is a good place to sample the Vasari Singers' warmly engaged performances” BBC Music Magazine, Christmas 2012 ***

“I found [the Gibbs] utterly beguiling and count it as a real discovery...The Vasari Singers always close their Christmas concerts with some seasonal sweetmeats, as they do here...the standard of singing throughout the programme is very high indeed – as we’ve come to expect from this fine ensemble.” MusicWeb International, November 2012

The Choir of Wellington Cathedral (chorus), Michael Fulcher, (chorus master), Richard Apperley (organ)

“This smartly assembled program of choral music reflecting the advent and incarnation of Christ includes a mix of 17 cherished chestnuts and less familiar yet appealing text settings by 20th- and 21st-century stylistically diverse composers from Britain, the United States, and New Zealand. Anthems are interspersed with carol arrangements. The complete program with listings of composers and titles may be found at the Raven website. The program begins with the topics of the Advent and Annunciation, followed by texts of Adoration, commenting on the birth of Christ. Three contrasting lullabies precede a reflection on the gifts of the Magi. Two traditional carols featuring the full forces of choir, organ, and brass frame a more serene vision of peace on earth to conclude the program. Under the masterful leadership of Michael Fulcher, the 26-voice choir and soloists perform beautifully throughout, conveying the spirit of the texts and the stylistic substance of each work. They sing with clear diction; transparent yet solid, well-balanced vocalism; fine intonation; and subtlety of expression and dynamic contrast. Organ scholar Thomas Gaynor, who is baritone soloist in Geoffrey Coker's The Salutation, is organ accompanist in James O'Donnell's arrangement of Once in Royal David's City. Richard Apperley provides all other organ accompaniments. Both use the resources of the large instrument creatively, skillfully supporting the singers. The resonant brass sextet adds luster and brilliance in some of the carol arrangements. This excellently produced recording of Christmas music will find a place of pride among the wealth of recordings celebrating the season.” The American Organist

The Choir of York Minster, Robert Sharpe

Christmas is arguably no better experienced than in one of England’s great cathedrals, not least at York Minster. Music plays a key role here: the uplifting sound of the choir in joyous repertoire, the grandiose sound of the organ, and the wonderful acoustic all come together to celebrate this season.

In this programme, the choir of York Minster offers up a feast of mostly 20th century and contemporary English music, including the four major carols by Herbert Howells, Ralph VaughanWilliams’ extended Fantasia on Christmas carols, and Richard Shephard’s hilarious new arrangement of Jingle Bells. Of special interest are recent new carols from Matthew Martin, Stephen Jackson, Francis Pott, and Grayston Ives – the first two works commissioned by York Minster and receiving their first recording here.

Choir of The Queen's College, Oxford, Owen Rees

‘Carols from Queen’s’ is a true celebration of The Choir of Queen’s College, Oxford, presenting popular holiday favourites that have deep associations with the renowned institution, including The Boar’s Head Carol, A spotless Rose, In the bleak midwinter, and The Three Kings.

The Choir of the Queen’s College, Oxford is one of the world’s most renowned choral institutions. Carols from Queen’s presents the choir in all its luxuriant glory. This blockbuster holiday album celebrates the Choir’s illustrious history, and offers some of the most beloved carols from throughout the ages.

Several of the composers and arrangers of the popular carols featured on this album had associations with The Queen’s College. This is truly ‘Carols from Queen’s’. The Boar’s Head Carol is the work most strongly associated with the heritage of the College. It originated in the 14th century at Queen’s and has been sung every year since at the Christmas time Boar’s Head Feast in the College Hall. Kenneth Leighton (Lully, lulla, thou little tiny child) and Herbert Howells (A spotless Rose), two prominent 20th-century British composers of sacred choral music, both studied at The Queen’s College. Harold Darke (In the bleak midwinter) and Ivor Atkins (The Three Kings) were both members of Queen’s. Atkins’s ever-popular arrangement of The Three Kings appeared in the much-used anthology Carols for Choirs I, compiled in part by Reginald Jacques, a student at Queen’s who become Organist of the College from 1926 - 1936, and a Fellow. Several best-loved carols from this volume are featured on this album. Rounding out Carols from Queen’s are such popular favourites as O Holy Night, Coventry carol, O Come all Ye Faithful, and many more.

Colin Walsh (organ)

The Choir of Lincoln Cathedral, Aric Prentice

There have been many recordings of Herbert Howells choral works but not a series of his complete anthems. Priory aims to achieve this with a collection to be sung by the Lincoln Cathedral Choir.

Herbert Howells is rooted in the English Cathedral tradition to which he has contributed so many services and anthems and his is a unique and instantly recognisable idiom rich in intricate and harmonically complex counterpoint; in long , interweaving and mellifluous vocal lines all contributing to a response to the texts that he set that can be both austere and sensual.
