"I consider Willcock's Carols For Christmas CD one of the finest ever recorded, and I even own the companion book from the Metropolitan Museum of Art. So, why not a DVD of a performance tied into the same material?
Alas, the video is not even high quality for the standards of the time. Some of the songs don't even have the video and audio synchronized. So, stick to CD recordings of David Willcocks plus anyone, but I can't recommend the DVD here."
A Wonderful Performance.

"A truly wonderful and beautiful performance of favorite Christmas carols. The video source is older, but still clear and colorful. And the singing is glorious."
