Sleep, Holy Babe: A Collection of Christmas Lullabies features the British a cappella vocal ensemble Blossom Street Singers, founded in 2003. The group of about 20 singers has a sweet, warmly blended sound, and it can negotiate the variety of repertoire, some of which includes some crunchy dissonance, with assurance and precision. The selection of the repertoire gives the album special interest. It is made up mostly of music by contemporary British composers, including the group's capable director, Hilary Campbell, as well as Renaissance works by Pierre de Manchicourt and Richard Pygott, and the majority of pieces are recorded here for the first time.
Sleep, Holy Babe: A Colle. has been added to your Basket. Includes FREE MP3 version of this album. Blossom Street is a 19-voiced chamber choir,and Campbell has compiled an imaginative sequence of quieter christmas music,including eight premiere recordings. Finzi's touching A Lullaby is probably the finest. Perfomance Recording -BBC Music Magazine,Christmas '11. Solo singing is of a consistently high standard and Blossom Street's voices blend well.
