“…Better by far to save your pennies for a Carol recording with some real Xmas Spirit – a disc by the chamber choir Canticum and their conductor Mark Forkgen. I’m happy to give it the big thumbs up not just because of the polish and refinement of the singing, but because all its profits will go to a branch of the Samaritans.”

“And surely even Ebeneezer Scrooge himself would be touched by something in the course of these 24 generous tracks.”
