I hope that by saying we are taking it back to basics on this choral Christmas music playlist you don’t think we are saying that there isn’t considerable craft and skill required in its production. No, our point is that before recorded music had its way this is how Christmas music would have been best enjoyed. And often this was within the confines of a holy institution or as the season drew close out on the streets as people busied themselves stocking up for the 25th. Christmas carols as sung by the best choirs in the world are the sorbet we need every now and then to wash away the taste of the meat and 2 veg of the 20th centuries tinsel led festive recordings. Once consumed we will be right back at Bing and Frank’s door.
