Really good stuff. :) Anthony if you're listening, won't you please create another disc of your early music and offer it for sale?!
The recording was really good and St.Pauls Cathedral Choir lived up to their reputation. Anthony was brilliant in the solo parts and backed up well by the choir. The choice of music was great, with all the songs I used to really enjoy singing.
Get this CD, I can assure you that it will be played Christmas after Christmas.
The selections on this recording enable it to be far more than a soloist record. They range from the almost obligatory - but never old - Willcocks arrangements of "O Come all Ye Faithful" and "Once in Royal David's City", to a unique performance of Cornelius's "The Three Kings" - with Anthony singing the solo (and it's so glorious that I wish it was always performed this way), to a really spine-chilling rendition of "Do You Hear What I Hear". No, I'm not kidding. That last really is powerful, and the choir sings it full-bloodedly - as though their life depended on it, not as if it were a little candy-song. The "king of cathedral choirs", that of St Paul's, is featured here in all its glory, and in the more "intimate" acoustics of the Temple Church - more "intimate", that is, when compared to Wren's massive cathedral, which is the choir's home.Read more ›

Brilliantly performed Christmas classics. Alone or with the choir of St Paul's Cathedral, Anthony is an amazing vocalist.Published on November 9, 2004
A beautiful holiday collection. Anthony's voice is that of a true professional, a hardworking treble who really delivers the
magic of Christmas, a must have in any collection. Read more
