Review quote

Here are two tuneful carols that choirs will enjoy singing [this and Malcolm Archer: A sound of singing fills the air]. The texts may be unfamiliar, but are set in a most sensitive way, as you would expect from both these composers . . . Alan Bullard's setting is equally melodic - with the main melody shared by upper and lower voices then arranged unaccompanied in a chorale. Interest is maintained by setting this sometimes in the minor, then in its tonic
major. The chorus 'Gloria in excelsis Deo' in both these carols is melodically remarkably similar! * James L Montgomery,, December 2017 *
