Many Ex Cathedra fans will have experienced the very special atmosphere at our Christmas Music by Candlelight concerts, which have been at the heart of the choir’s year for almost 40 years. Like the concerts themselves, Christmas Music by Candlelight – Alleluya, a new work, provides an evocative mix of Christmas repertoire, moving from traditional favourites to rare, foreign and contemporary. Jeffrey Skidmore describes the CD as ‘challenging and demanding and, we hope, uplifting and refreshing.’

REVIEWS for Christmas Music by Candlelight:

‘Excellent! … An eclectic mixture that this wonderful choir has evolved … A breath of fresh air in a market dominated by the tried, the tested and the often rather stale… Ex Cathedra is a fantastic choir who know who they are and sing with pride and polish and flair.’ (BBC Radio 3 CD Review)

If you only buy one CD of Christmas music this year, make sure it’s this one. (Musicweb International)
