If the holidays bring out your traditional streak (i.e. are you listening to Perry Como, Andy Williams and the like?), here’s an album you’ll be sure to love: John Rutter’s Music for Christmas, on the Hyperion Label. It’s choir (Polyphony) plus orchestra (The London Sinfonia), conducted by Stephen Layton. You can buy it on Amazon
Maybe I’m a bit late for this year but then again, there’s always next year. The choral sound is magnificent, the arrangements are sublime, and it’s just a lot of fun. If you like Rutter, you’ll love this!
May your holiday be blessed with good cheer, and may the music of the season whisper beautiful hopes and dreams in your ear!
