'This Christmas Night' Reviews

RES10113_cover_300dpi-2The Mixed Choir’s latest release This Christmas Night has received universal praise from a range of reviewers, including BBC Music Magazine, Gramophone, International Record Review and the Daily Telegraph.

We are proud to be named BBC Music Magazine’s Christmas Choice 2012.

BBC Music Magazine ‘Christmas Choice’ 2012: “A wonderful collection of carols… delectably sensitive performances… the sound is impeccable”

“Focusing on the English repertoire, Resonus has produced a winner for the Christmas market – 20 radiant carols… all worth hearing” – Financial Times

“Yes, much of the writing on this release is challenging for the singers but The Choir of Worcester College, Oxford rises to it and give a stunning performance, ably captured by producer/engineer Adam Binks. If you have any interest in contemporary choral music this is a must-hear and if you are looking for new music for Christmas this is an excellent choice.” – CrossRhythms

“In a world full of the conventional Christmas recording this comes as a breath of fresh air” – Lark Reviews

“This refreshing selection of contemporary carols is given capable performances by Worcester College Chapel Mixed Choir. With so much new repertoire, this is an album which invites multiple listenings. It certainly makes a change from the standard fare, and marks Worcester College Chapel Mixed Choir out as one to watch.” – Cherwell.org

“[…] they acquit themselves well in a varied programme devoted to music by recent and contemporary composers. Like Resonus’s Christmas offering last year, this is sufficiently different not to get lost in the welter of seasonal recordings.” – MusicWeb International
