Rezension bezieht sich auf: On a Cold Winter's Day - Early Christmas Music and Carols from the British Isles (Audio CD)
My friend told me about this cd as she is involved with the percussionist in the band, so I was pretty skeptical at first but as soon as she played me some of their stuff, I was hooked. The songs while old and traditional are as yet "uncommercialised" and therefore a breath of fresh air. The ensemble work is passionate, skilled, authentic and folksy. This is when British music still had a heart and hadn't been dampened by the dull hymns of the Church of England! This cd reminded me of Sting's album "If on A Winter's Night" but is certainly in a class of it's own. An excellent stocking filler for early music, folk or alternative Christmas Carol fans alike.
