"Whether it is for singing along by the fireside or sitting in exhausted contentment when the guests have gone, this year`s seasonal CDs offer ample choice. The choir of St Paul`s Cathedral tops the list of new discs of traditional fare with Love came down at Christmas, conducted by the cathedral`s director of music, Malcolm Archer."
Daily Telegraph, 12/12/2005

 

"`Hauntingly beautiful`is how choirmaster Malcolm Archer describes Sandstrom`s arrangement of Praetorius`s `Es ist ein Ros ensprungen` - and so it is... The huge St Paul`s acoustic is appropriately atmospheric****."
BBC Music Magazine, 13/12/2005
