I am writing to compliment you on the wonderful delivery of the most peaceful, tranquil and beautiful version of Christmas carols I have heard in a long time.
I was given a copy some weeks before Christmas and was so thrilled and delighted to hear it. It is so "listenable" and after a hard day's work I found it wonderful to slow the pace without feeling the commercialisation of Christmas from this production.
Well done to you, a great achievement! I will definitely be giving copies to my friends and encouraging them to buy for their friends!
This CD from lyre maestro John Billing is a splendid piece of work! When I first heard it I felt as though lit up within by the clarity and warmth of the sound and the fresh ring that is brought to many old favourites as well as some lovely new surprises.
John has here assembled a fine array of instruments to wonderful effect. The CD itself is a production of the highest quality with the special bonus of some stunning artwork! Altogether a joy to behold!
