Andrew Parrott conductor

‘A truly revelatory programme which might safely have been named “Quite Simply the Best Christmas Album Ever”…  A Christmas cornucopia of the timeless and the contemporary, the old world and the new, Parrott’s collection is also a sly celebration of the central role of women in the Christmas story, in performances of staggeringly rich musical variety.’

BBC Music Magazine

‘No one has recorded more innovative Christmas anthologies than Andrew Parrott – and this disc is no exception… All of the performances are exemplary, but Emily Van Evera deserves special praise… This collection can stand alongside Parrott's The Carol Album as the thinking person's Christmas albums.’
