Philip Lane, "The doyen of British Light Music" (James Jolly, Gramophone), has collaborated with Heritage for this Christmas release – orchestral music for the festive season composed by leading figures in the Light Music movement.

Most works featured here are based, to a greater or lesser extent, on ‘traditional tunes’, suitably ‘adorned’ for orchestra and the concert hall. Several are entirely original but allude to the Christmas story in their various facets. The recording features several world premieres.

Heritage is delighted that Joanna Lumley and John Julius Norwich feature as narrators for Adam Saunders’ new setting of The Twelve Days of Christmas.
