The Choir of Christ’s College, Cambridge, David Rowland (director)

A most usual collection of early twentieth century original English carols and carol arrangements by Peter Warlock, Gustav Holst, and Ralph Vaughan Williams, sung by the excellent mixed choir of Christ’s College, Cambridge, directed by David Rowland. This is the choir’s eighth recording on the Regent label.

The recording includes a selection of nine well-known carols by Warlock, a set of four lesser-known carol arrangements and the ever-popular ‘Lully my liking’ by Holst.

Of particular interest is the first recording of the choral version of Vaughan Williams’s 1919 set of Eight English Traditional Carols. Apart from ‘This is the truth sent from above’, this wonderful set of carols is virtually unknown to choirs today, and contains Vaughan Williams’s imaginative and colourful arrangements of tunes that have become known through the work of later arrangers, including ‘The Sussex Carol’ (On Christmas night), ‘Down in yon forest’, and ‘Wassail Song’.

Finzi Singers, Paul Spicer

“The Peter Warlock of the evergreen CapriolSuite and the boisterous songs seems a world away from the introverted and intense artist of these unaccompanied choral carols. Perhaps Warlock's real genius was an ability to create profound expression in short musical structures, but even the more outgoing pieces – the joyful Benedicamus Domino and the Cornish ChristmasCarol, with its gentle hint at 'The First Nowell' – have an artistic integrity which raises them high above the level of the syrup of modern-day carol settings. Given performances as openly sincere and sensitive as these, few could be unmoved. In the two Moeran madrigal suites there's an indefinable Englishness – the result of a deep awareness of tradition and love of the countryside. The Finzi Singers' warm-toned, richly expressive voices capture the very essence of this uniquely lovely music.” Gramophone Classical Music Guide, 2010
