Overview

A Christmas Caroll from Westminster Abbey presents a delightful and unusual selection of music for Christmas from James O'Donnell and the Choir of Westminster Abbey. It encompasses all the diverse themes of Christmas that have inspired composers across the ages — light shining in darkness, the tenderness of mother and child, the fulfillment of promise, and the warm merriment of corporate celebration. This excellent selection of contemporary carols features the composers Jonathan Dove and Bob Chilcott among others. The richness of twentieth-century church music is illustrated in works by Poulenc, Walton, Mathias and Leighton, and by the heartbreakingly lovely piece "The little Road to Bethlehem" by Michael Head. Skillful arrangements of the traditional carols "Silent night," "In dulci jubilo," and "I saw three ships" complete this attractive seasonal release. From the Label
