“Another radiant spectacular from the Gabrieli Consort… A gutsy and atmospheric Yuletide celebration.”Gramophone

“McCreesh’s customary focus on bringing to life the pomp and ceremony of a huge celebratory occasion offers huge rewards for the listener as musicology, the finest performing forces, and first-rate sound engineering combine to deliver a bold and beautiful “you are there” experience… don’t miss this one.”Classics Today
