Review quote

Handled with a light touch and a sure sense of the intended effect, and this approach is eminently appropriate for the delightful doggerel of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow . . . Try it, as something new yet familiar for a grand finale! * Organ, November 2007 * Christopher Wiggins' Christmas Bells has a delightful original melody - bell-like, of course, but also faintly modal, and it dances. * Choir & Organ, November/December 07 *show more
