Britten - A Ceremony of Carols & Saint Nicolas - The Mail on Sunday

My Christmas Album of the Year is yet another exceptional Hyperion offering, this one featuring two of Benjamin Britten's most readily accessible choral works: A Ceremony of Carols from 1942, and the cantata Saint Nicolas from 1948.

Stephen Layton, one of our finest choral conductors, directs his Trinity College Choir in the former and the Holst Singers with tenor Allan Clayton and others in the latter.
