Andrew Carter's Christmas Carols CD

Andrew Carter Christmas Carols CDOn this highly acclaimed CD (See reviews here) from the York Ambisonic label, Andrew Carter conducts twenty of London's finest professional singers in a sequence of his best and most widely-known carols. Quire of London is accompanied by John Scott, organist of St Paul's Cathedral, who also performs two of Carter's solo pieces.
