Blossom Street present a selection of Warlock's best-known carols alongside a number of lesser-known part-songs, with no fewer than six world premiere recordings.

Immediately apparent is the huge breadth of range seen throughout these exquisite miniatures - from the dark despair of 'The Shrouding of the Duchess of Malfi' to the uproarious sociable songs for men's voices, and the imagery contained in 'The Night' to the haunting stillness of Warlock's most frequently heard work 'Bethlehem Down' - Warlock's lyrical and harmonically rich sound world is always evident.
'...everything in this collection is enjoyable. Credit for this must go to Hilary Campbell and her Blossom Street singers who sound lovely.'
'This being Peter Warlock, there's nothing prim and proper - The Shrouding of the Duchess of Malfi is really spooky and the performances match the music. The recording is good too.' MusicWeb International
'Blossom Street are a choir of young voices and this comes over very clearly in the freshness of this lovely recording [...] a valuable addition to the repertoire.' Lark Reviews
