Reviewed by Mike Gill

Recorded at Coventry Cathedral and the United Reform Church Coventry and produced by Christopher Norton, this is yet another release in the 'The Best..Ever' series. With few exceptions all the tracks here are the best loved carols and Christmas songs sung in traditional style by the voices of the St Michaels Singers and the Coventry Singers conducted by Paul Leddington Wright (from BBC's Songs Of Praise). The recordings are clear, smooth and crisp. The 50 songs here include "Away In A Manger", "The Wexford Carol", "Silent Night", "The Holly And The Ivy" and "Joy To The World". Best track by a short head is the outstanding though all-too-brief "Coventry Carol" - regal, imposing, introspective and quietly beautiful. Other gems are Mendelssohn's majestic and eternal "Hark The Herald Angels" and, not to be outshone, the haunting "O Little One Sweet" - fabulously enhanced by the Cathedral's acoustics.
