Listening to Christmas CDs from November onwards is perhaps not so different from seeing mince pies in the supermarket in September, but choirs have to face the more extreme anachronism of recording their Christmas programmes months in advance when most of us are contemplating summer holidays rather than the holly and the ivy. Worcester College Choir put this disc together in June, decamping to the glorious acoustics of Keble College chapel and, as we can hear from the wondrous results, successfully harnessing the warmth of the weather outside to give performances that radiate a heartfelt glow.
