A Celtic album with a difference: medieval and renaissance sounds without any of the syrupy harmonies and electronic sounds that often pass as 'Celtic'. From the beautiful Scottish cradle song 'Balulalow' to 'Nos galen' and 'Auld lang syne', this album promises to be different; and genuinely inspired by the Celtic muse!

Jonathan Ellse & Sidharth Parbhu-Naik (organ)

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’.

Janet Baker (mezzo-soprano)

Through her many recordings, Dame Janet Baker’s voice has been a constant presence in the lives of millions of people, so it is amazing to contemplate that she last sang in opera at Glyndebourne in 1982 and retired altogether in 1989, aged only 56. These two compact discs take us back to the beginning of her recording career, when she was in her late 20s and early 30s but already an experienced, accomplished singer. Two recordings for the SAGA label were made in the early 1960s, both of which feature here. The most important is perhaps the LP of English songs since she never returned to any of them on record. The lieder recital abounds with beautiful technique and tone. The two SAGA recordings are supplemented by a 1960 recital she made for the BBC Third Programme with Ernest Lush.

Choir of Chester Cathedral

Here is a lovely collection of Christmas Carols from the ever-improving cathedral choir in Chester. A varied selection of old and new carols is interspersed with some short organ interludes.

“the most appealing of any cathedral recording I've heard this year. The boys' sound is very much brighter than that of many cathedral choirs - in fact the boys-only a cappella repertoire here is particularly accomplished...Rushforth paces the choir's performance with real tenderness and beauty.” Gramophone Magazine, December 2012
