Music for Christmas from Tewkesbury Abbey

Tewkesbury Abbey Schola Cantorum
Carleton Etherington organ
Benjamin Nicholas director

In the vast, echoing space of their Mediaeval home the boys and men of Tewkesbury Abbey Schola Cantorum celebrate the awe and mystery of Christmas, ushering in the birth of the Christchild with a sequence of carols from the last two centuries that combines familiar names with offerings from some of today's foremost composers.

I doubt whether there are many more admirable choirs outside Westminster, Oxford and Cambridge than the Tewkesbury Abbey Schola Cantorum. On Tewkesbury’s new Christmas disc, The Three Kings, Nicholas’s choir give proof yet again of the qualities that place them firmly in the front rank: flair, acumen, versatility and poise.
Church Times, December 2007

It is very hard not to use superlatives when speaking of Ben Nicholas and his choir at Tewkesbury Abbey, and once again I fail. This is yet another quite outstanding disc of the highest standard.
