        Challenging but enjoyable set of choral pieces, VW always worth singing, and his take on English folk music is creative and respectful of context.
        You can't sing them normally as a set of five because the last one is very unmistakably a mid-winter carol/song. Personally I find much 'classical' reworking of folk music a bit over-written, and the VW is no exception.
