Meltingly Beautiful

Christmas music from
the Vasari Singers -
unstintingly recommended
by HOWARD SMITH

'... exemplary radiant style and élan ...'

A Winter's Light - A Christmas Collection. Vasari Singers / Jeremy Backhouse. © 2012 Naxos Rights International Ltd

What better CD sales opportunity for popular singers and entertainers than Christmastime. Vocal stars and their estates are practically guaranteed a boost in sales as Yule and successive New Year's seasons come and go.

Tried, true and traditional songs are revisited by the likes of Elvis Presley, Perry Como, Bing Crosby, Mariah Carey and Katherine Jenkins.

At the same time Annie Lennox, Jethro Tull and The Sixteen have been less predictable yet no less valid at this time of year...
