On Christmas Night, an album featuring St. John's College Choir, Cambridge, led by Andrew Nethsingha, should have strong appeal for fans of men and boy's choirs and their characteristic repertoire. The choir has a sweet, youthful sound that's warmly blended. There is none of the hootiness that can trouble some men and boy's groups, but a pure and focused tone. The album's selections are what listeners have come to expect from English cathedral and college choirs: a healthy mix of very standard carols along with a few less familiar, some contemporary classic anthems, folk song arrangements, and new works recorded for the first time. The mood of the music is predominantly gentle and meditative, and even the more energetic selections, such as William Mathias' A babe is born and Ding! dong! merrily on high, maintain the reverent tone. Some of the livelier pieces, like the Renaissance vilancico Riu, riu, chiu!, would have benefited from a looser, less sober approach. Among the mostly recently composed pieces, Michael Finnissy's Telling and Matthew Martin's Adam lay ybounden are especially lovely. The album has a nicely resonant ambience, and the sound is clear and clean. © TiVo

Booklet Distinctions 5 de Diapason
The choral music of Herbert Howells works best when it is least stentorian, and the same is true for these performances by the Choir of St John's College Cambridge under Andrew Nethsingha. When Howells strives most mightily, as in the outer sections of his setting of By the Waters of Babylon, he is most likely to fail because he sounds all too clearly like he is striving mightily. At his most intimate, as in the brief A Spotless Rose, he succeeds, because he sounds strong, sincere, and not overly rotund. There is no doubt Howells knows what he's doing, but his taste is questionable, which inevitably casts doubt on his authenticity. One could not doubt conductor Nethsingha's technique or the Cambridge choir's ability. The choir is able to give Howells exactly what he asks for, but it does not have it in them to transform his more bombastic pages into something genuinely affecting. Recorded in rich, deep sound by Chandos, these performances are no better, and no worse, than the music. © TiVo
