About

This Christmas compilation was originally three 1960s Argo recordings of contemporary settings of carols by composers such as Nicholas Maw, Peter Maxwell Davies, Malcolm Williamson, William Walton, Edmund Rubbra, Benjamin Briitten and Richard Rodney Bennett.

This is a beautiful, and more unusual, Christmas collection.
