A Christmas Present From Polyphony

For over a decade, Stephen Layton and Polyphony have been astonishing London audiences with their annual Christmas concert series. Alongside extravagant oratorio performances, the group has presented a cappella programs of Christmas music to audiences enthralled by the range of repertoire available. This delightful new collection, available at budget price, brings together 18 favorite tracks from seven acclaimed recordings of music for the season. It features music by Rutter, Howells, Britten, and Warlock coupled with a tantalizing preview of Polyphony's forthcoming recording of Morten Lauridsen's choral music.
