A Little Christmas Music: If you’ve ever sung in a church choir or muffled up and sallied forth on a starry night in the bleak midwinter to go singing round the houses with a few friends, or if your idea of Christmas is a candle-lit hall decked with boughs of holly and distant voices singing familiar carols then you will derive real nostalgic cheer from this album – a festive Christmas journey with the King’s Singers and a cheeky homage in the form of a Mozart medley.
