Reviews

King's College, Cambridge is a byword for the very best in Christmas music, and this outstanding issue celebrates 20 years of carols newly commissioned for the annual Festival of Nine Lessions and Carols. The two CDs are stuffed with memorable settings [including] Judith Weir's dramatically angular Illuminare Jerusalem ... This is the one unmissable seasonal issue this Christmas.
Terry Blain, BBC Music Magazine, 12/1/2005

Lennox Berkeley's In Wintertime [is] immediately appealing ... Judith Weir's Illuminaire, Jerusalem [is] musically compelling.
Marc Rochester, International Record Review, 12/1/2005

...the broad scale of Swayne's Winter Solstice Carol strike[s] out into new territory. Highlights include Weir's Illuminare, Jerusalem...
Paul Driver, The Sunday Times, 12/18/2005
