'I've always loved traditional carols.The simple symmetry of these beautiful old songs pull at the heart and beg to be sung. These variations based on eleven well loved tunes take me back to people and places I never want to forget. I used the lovely old melodies as a starting point but wrote my own new themes to form 'hybrids', adding freshness and originality whilst keeping the joy and beauty of the Christmas spirit.'.....Peter Pritchard, Wellington, New Zealand. This album is truly a delightful listen.
