A Christmas Festival

Collegium - COLCD 133
IN RECENT YEARS the annual Christmas Festival concerts I have been privileged to conduct in London with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra have given me particular pleasure, not least the experience of hearing a Royal Albert Hall audience of over 5000 people sing the two great Christmas hymns which frame the event.

This recording brings together some of the artists and music featured in our concerts. Much of the music has been specially written or arranged, and is recorded here for the first time. In addition to my own choir the Cambridge Singers, I am delighted that our performers include the marvellous Farnham Youth Choir, and three of my all-time favourite soloists, Elin Manahan Thomas (whose fluency in Welsh puts me to shame), Clara Sanabras (ditto Spanish), and my long-time friend and founder-member of the Cambridge Singers, Melanie Marshall. Thanks to the miracles of recording technology, we have also been able to add the majestic sound of the Royal Albert Hall organ, so masterfully played by Dr John Birch.

I have been associated with the music of Christmas for many years now. It has always brought me great joy, and I am sure it always will.


Recorded in Cadogan Hall, London, April 2008; Organ recorded in the Royal Albert Hall, June 2008
