Christmas music
from Voces 8 -

HOWARD SMITH

'... breathtaking clarity.'

Voces 8 Christmas. © 2012 Signum Records

Six solo male and two female voices constitute VOCES8 — an a cappella octet from the United Kingdom. As Christmas approaches I doubt whether 2013 will bring eighteen more exquisitely recorded nativity items. Best known yuletide songs include Once in Royal David's City, Away in a Manger, Ding Dong Merrily on High, Coventry Carol and The Three Kings.

Bask in traditional carols arranged from Europe and North America...
