Christmas Lullabies

Reviews

"The whole disc, traces a journey from Christ’s conception to birth, is a complete delight and worthy of any Christmas stocking"  Gary Higginson, musicweb-international.com

'The combination of solo soprano and harp is one of the simplest and most beautiful in the world of music, and on a magnificently recorded new Nimbus CD, Christmas Lullabies, the soprano Charlotee de Rothschild is most ably partnered by Danielle Perrett in a remarkably wide-ranging and enthralling collection...The CD makes an enthralling recital in itself.' Robert Matthew-Walker, International Music Magazine, December 2013

'Charlotte de Rothschild has the most pristine of voices, and so is eminently suited to this repertoire. Danielle Perrett is a superb player, and not just a superb accompanist, as her rapt reading of the Old French carol “Let all flesh keep mortal silence” shows. The recording is simply exemplary throughout. An essay by Charlotte de Rothschild (“Christmas at Exbury”) sets the scene deliciously.  Harp solos are strategically placed for variety's sake, and they provide their own brand of magic. Then there is the ever-popular “Walking in the Air”, as inevitable as it is poignant. Those chestnuts which roast every year in an open fire provide a fitting end, especially as the song ends with the words “Merry Christmas to you”, the perfect way to leave the listener.  A lovely, heart-warming disc. Enjoy.' Colin Clark, musicweb-international.com
