CD Review: Christmas choral music

The LPO’s CD of festive choral classics was reviewed by Andrew Clark in the Financial Times (3 stars):

“The Christmas concept album is nearly as old as the recording process, but few make a decent musical meal of it. The LPO and Choir provide serious nourishment while opening our ears to the sort of Christmas music that gets overlooked amid the tinsel…this is a programme combining enterprise and tradition, to be enjoyed during the Christmas season and beyond.”

Bach Cantata 63
Mendelssohn Vom Himmel hoch
Vaughan Williams The First Nowell

Vladimir Jurowski conductor
Lisa Milne soprano
Ruxandra Donose mezzo soprano
Andrew Staples tenor
Christopher Maltman baritone
London Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir
