Christmas music comes in all shapes and sizes - there really is something for anyone and any taste. Benjamin Britten takes you on a yuletide ride with festive folk melody through haunting lyrical passages and icy harmonies with his two master works: his Ceremony of Carols and his Saint Nicolas. Moving back in time, what better way to welcome in the season than with Handel's glorious Messiah. Then there's Vivaldi's Four Seasons to reflect on the year past and the year to come: here we've got an unusual twist for you on this timeless classic - a version for recorders. Then there's song for this festive time of year, from William Byrd's 'Out of the Orient Crystal Skies' to Peter Warlock's 'Sleep'. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to one and all.
