Christmas is arguably no better experienced than in one of England’s great cathedrals, not least at York Minster. Music plays a key role here: the uplifting sound of the choir in joyous repertoire, the grandiose sound of the organ, and the wonderful acoustic all come together to celebrate this season.

In this programme, the choir of York Minster offers up a feast of mostly 20th century and contemporary English music, including the four major carols by Herbert Howells, Ralph Vaughan Williams’ extended Fantasia on Christmas Carols, and Richard Shephard’s hilarious new arrangement of Jingle Bells.

Of special interest are recent new carols from Matthew Martin, Stephen Jackson, Francis Pott and Grayston Ives – the first two works commissioned by York Minster and receiving their first recording here.
