    Directed by David Rowland

    ‘The singing is consistently good: the attack and ensemble are excellent and the accompaniments sensitive and supportive.’
    Organists’ Review March 2016

    ‘Christ's College. Cambridge, conducted by David Rowland with Sidharth Prabhyu-Naik (organ), are well suited to their programme of Carols by Holst, Vaughan Williams and Warlock, and sing with great commitment and beauty of tone.’
    Choir & Organ November 2016

    ‘I enjoyed this disc very much indeed. The singing of the choir is fresh and attractive throughout. It's also very clear; one scarcely has need to resort to the printed texts. .’
    MusicWeb October 2015‘

    'This latest release is as accomplished as its predecessors, helped in no small part by the excellent audio quality in the Chapel of Queen's College, ably captured by producer/engineer Gary Cole...The choir is in splendid voice and appropriate accompaniment comes from organists Jonathan Ellse and Sidharth Prabhu-Naik. This is well worth hearing.’

    Crossrythms November 2015
