        Our Community Singing Group loves this piece. Beautiful words, easy to learn and sing - and very atmospheric. We use it each Christmas. Highly recommended for a non- technical group of singers. Simple but very effective.

        Very pretty arrangement. Quickly picked up by even a reasonably inexperienced choir.

        A deceptively easy piece for a small choir to learn

        Rather disappointing - somewhat mundane. Perhaps it will grown on us in time. None of the wow-factor usually found with John Rutter.

        Delightful, the simplicity of the melody & 2 part vocal lines be-lying the effectiveness. A lovely addition to a Christmas concert for any amateur/youth choir. The audience leaving with the melody lingering.

        This is a very pleasant arrangement. Tha parts are not too demanding and the range is not vast. The words are probably slightly 'twee' for a secondary school choir, but other age groups will enjoy this Christmas song.

        I can't wait to start teaching this wonderful two part arrangement to my pupils.

        This is an easy but effective carol that most SA choirs could tackle. The piano accompaniment is what makes it and this too is fairly easy, although needs a good hand stretch! A good Rutter carol to have in your repertoire.

        Usual high standard of music typical of John Rutter
