This delightful new collection, available at budget price, brings together favourite tracks from seven acclaimed recordings: Rutter, Howells, Britten, Warlock and othersthe very stuff of Christmas. For over a decade Stephen Layton and Polyphony have been astonishing London audiences with their Christmas concert series: nothing crowns the year like the annual, exhilarating eve of Christmas Eve performance of Handels Messiah by the choir Polyphony under Stephen Layton. Alongside extravagant oratorio performances, the group has presented a cappella programmes of Christmas music to audiences enthralled by the range of repertoire available. This compact disc brings together music from many of these acclaimed recordings. Also included is a tantalizing preview of Polyphonys forthcoming recording of Morten Lauridsens choral music (CDA67449).
