AllMusic Review by

At 21 tracks, this set of holiday songs and carols is as generous as it is soothing and comforting. The four-piece group that is gathered here (Ian Giles on vocals and drum, John Spiers on vocals and melodeon, Jon Bowden on vocals and fiddle, and Giles Lewan on vocals, fiddle, pipes, and flute) does a great job at presenting timeless seasonal songs like “Good King Wenceslas,” “Bright Morning Star,” “Silent Night,” “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” and others with grace and goodwill.
