The Vasari Singers' annual carol concerts always provide a warming blend of traditional favorites and less well-known music from all periods and styles. Here joyous and masterful 16th-century polyphony sits alongside eternally popular Victorian carols and exquisitely crafted settings by Howells and Walford Davies join works as recent as Gabriel Jackson's the Christ-child. Bob Chilcott magically superimposes traditional carols with entrancing new material and no Vasari Christmas would be complete without some close harmony Swingle singing. The Vasari Singers have also recorded Gabriel Jackson's Requiem (8573049).
