This masterfully crafted set of carols features a mixture of popular carols such as God rest ye merry gentlemen and lesser-known but equally enjoyable carols such as the Mummers' Carol. The arrangements were made during the Second World War at the request of the British Council for performance by H.M. Forces in Iceland.
Vaughan Williams has come to be regarded as one of the finest British composers of the 20th century. He has a particularly wide-ranging catalogue of works, including choral works, symphonies, concerti, and opera. His searching and visionary imagination, combined with a flexibility in writing for all levels of music-making, has meant that his music is as popular today as it ever has been.
