"The fact that the music seems to course through the very veins of the singers and players, not to mention Layton himself, is one of the qualities that make this Christmas Oratorio such a telling, affecting and inspiring experience, judiciously balancing jubilation, devotion and contemplation."
The Daily Telegraph
"It’s impossible to resist. Beyond doubt, one of music’s most spine-tingling moments."
The Mail on Sunday
