AllMusic Review by

This collection of traditional Christmas music by Alex Jones is classical in feel and scope, yet brings new depth to the simple carols. When Everything Old Is New Again is wholly instrumental and performed largely on acoustic instruments. The feeling of the music ranges from that of a small chamber ensemble to the majesty of the grandest of church organs, although no pipe organ is heard; and recorders appear on many of the tracks, lending a sense of times long past. This is a moving work of spirit and hope, of light and love, of music and awe; truly a gift from an established new age musician to those who love the music of the season.
