The Naxos book of carols is mixture of the very old and the very new. Comissioned by the leading international classical music label Naxos, these 24 arrangements of traditional and original carols tell the Christmas story - from Advent to the humble birth of the King of kings. Includes practical guidance on how the carols may be used by choirs with varied resources, as well as the original Naxos CD, performed by the award-winning choir Tonus Peregrinus and directed by the composer Antony Pitts.
