This glorious programme represents both the unique magic of Christmas carols, and the deeply rooted tradition of re-inventing their words and music for the times in which they are performed. From David Hill’s unashamedly lush, close-part harmonies enhancing Silent Night, to Eric Whitacre’s hallmark luminous vocal textures in Lux aurumque, this recording is a superb celebration of the moving atmosphere and festive nature of the Christmas season.

This programme is drawn from an exciting collection of Advent, Christmas and Epiphany music for mixed voice choirs, edited by David Hill. This fine recording presents a varied selection of beautiful carols that capture the essence of the collection in stunning performances by the choir IKON.

Renowned for his fine musicianship, David Hill is widely respected as both a choral and orchestral conductor. He was chief conductor of the BBC Singers from September 2007 to September 2017 and is a former music director of Southern Sinfonia. As well as achieving prestigious Grammy and Gramophone Awards, many of his albums have been recommended as Critic’s Choices, with his ongoing series of English choral music for Naxos receiving particular acclaim.
