Read Presto's complete review of this disc here.

There are few choirs around today who can match the unbridled excellence of Trinity Cambridge. On this new album we find great carols both old and new. Add in some astonishing fresh arrangements and we have twenty-one tracks of pure festive indulgence—Yule love it!

“All the popular selections…sound notably relaxed and idiomatic, the choir's stylistic versatility confidently demonstrated.” BBC Music Magazine, December 2015 *****

“Highlights for me are two new works by the young Trinity alumnus Owain Park (b.1993): an easy-on-the-ear ‘Cradle Song’ which put me a little in mind of Bob Chilcott, and a dazzling setting of ‘Tomorrow shall be my dancing day’, full of fiendishly intricate part-writing which the fresh-voiced, well-schooled Trinity singers despatch with total aplomb.” Katherine Cooper, Presto Classical, 4th December 2015

The Twelve Days Of Christmas

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 ****
