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 great painters have always known how to combine the different perspectives of the Nativity into a single picture. Here the RIAS Kammerchor tells the Christmas Story in music: Mendelssohn frames the painting, to which the darkness and the promise of promise of heavenly light form the background. The Virgin Mary leads us to the heart of Christmas Night and to rejoicing at the Saviour’s birth. We come full circle with the Four Motets of Poulenc, which sum up all the facets of Christmas and its emotions.

Founded in 1948 under the auspices of ‘Radio in the American Sector’, the RIAS Kammerchor played an important role in the revival of post-war musical life in Berlin. The core of its repertoire is the music of the Baroque era, together with the modern classics and the music of today. It swiftly acquired an international reputation for premiering new works by such composers as Penderecki, Reimann, Kagel, Gundermann and Tan Dun.

After Uwe Gronostay, Marcus Creed, and Daniel Reuss, Hans-Christoph Rademann has directed the ensemble since 2007, in close collaboration with Concerto Köln, Freiburger Barockorchester, Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, and the Orchestre des Champs-Élysées, with such conductors as Frans Brüggen, Roger Norrington, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, René Jacobs and Philippe Herreweghe.

“The singing, all unaccompanied, has a natural, unforced eloquence, and is of a standard which makes criticism an impertinence. An outstandingly accompanied issue.” BBC Music Magazine, Christmas Issue 2013 *****

“The music is extraordinarily wide-ranging and has been exceptionally well chosen and sequenced… the result is an unmitigated joy- the performances are immaculate and most expressive, particularly of Poulenc’s four motets ‘pour le temps de Noel… a performance that could not, in my opinion be improved upon. This is an truly outstanding disc” International Record Review, December 2013

“A Christmas concept album, taking us from darkness to fulfilment and reflection...the voices of the Berlin-based RIAS Kammerchor turn in atmospheric performances.” Sunday Times, 22nd December 2013

“a different set of sweetly sung and stylishly played Christmas anthems...[the choir presents] a surface of calm and composure which withstands any slight imperfections in blend or tuning, and which creates an appealing sense of tranquillity that feels perfectly apposite for a disc following the development of the Christmas Story.” Gramophone Magazine, December 2012

Wade, J F:

O come, all ye faithful


The Colours of Christmas is a collection of the greatest Christmas carols by the composer/conductor whose music has, for many, been so associated with Christmas. Featuring the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and The Bach Choir, with guest artists Over the Bridge and conducted by Rutter himself.

The Colours of Christmas (track 2 from the album) is a newly composed carol by Rutter for this new album, and is testament to the very best of Rutter’s music. Newly orchestrated for this album are the carols Ding Dong Merrily On High and Hark! The Herald Angels Sing. All recordings on this album are brand new.

“If you believe that Christmas music should have a warm, comfortable feel, then this CD will fit the bill perfectly...Rutter is equally skilled as an arranger and orchestrator, and the ingenious use of calypso rhythms in 'Ding dong! Merrily on high' is a delight...The Bach Choir and Royal Philharmonic Orchestra give crisp, enthusiastic performances. The choir have superb diction, blend and ensemble.” Gramophone Magazine, January 2012

“There’s something for everyone here” Sunday Times, 18th December 2011

“Nobody knows more about Christmas carols than John Rutter, and this collection oozes class. The opening "Ding Dong! Merrily on High" sets the scene: full of fluttering woodwind and horns dancing around tinkling percussion.” The Independent, 23rd December 2011 ****

“Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a new piece from John Rutter, master of singable and ear-catching carols. This year’s is The Colours of Christmas, artlessly written and beautifully sung by the Bach Choir.” The Telegraph, 9th December 2011

“it’s hard not to enjoy the disc’s panache and the smiling skill of Rutter, the Bach Choir and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra as they paint the season red, white and green.” The Times, 23rd December 2011 ****

Described by Choir & Organ as ‘a tremendous choir, with superb technique and an immense, expressive range’, Orphei Drängar give proof of its versatility in a highly varied programme which still manages to stay within the theme of Christmas: original settings and new arrangements of Swedish folk songs and Christmas classics, English carols and Broadway songs – with Stille Nacht, a Russian hymn in praise of the Holy Virgin and Eric Whitacre’s widely admired Lux aurumque.
