Press reviews

Sleep, Holy Babe is a unique choral collection of 17 works based on the theme of The Nativity. At its heart lie nine Christmas lullabies, as well as two carols and a motet depicting the story of Christ’s birth. These are framed by a pair of Advent antiphons and Magnificat settings, and an Epiphany carol.

"Music that is reflective rather than extrovert, tonal but never facile, and with real spiritual depth. I love it."
