A Winter’s Light – Daily Telegraph

Extracts from Bob Chilcott’s On Christmas Night, melding his own material with well-known carols, punctuate a programme that ends with Jonathan Rathbone’s Carol Medley by way of Sweelinck’s exhilarating Hodie Christus Natus Est, Darke’s In the Bleak Midwinter, and Rutter’s Nativity Carol. With a jazzy arrangemenet of Jingle Bells and another of Greg Lake’s I Believe in Father Christmas, the polished, characterful Vasari Singers cast their net wide to include also Armstrong Gibbs’s lovely minature The Stable Door.
