Following its award-winning Christmas album, Sleep, Holy Babe
(Naxos 8.572868), Blossom Street
explores a wide-ranging sequence of British folk song settings for choir, with a particular focus on the nautical. The repertoire embraces pioneers in the rediscovery and arrangement of folk songs such as Vaughan Williams, Grainger and Warlock, adds little-known gems by Holst and Bairstow, and also introduces vibrant new additions to the repertoire from contemporary composers, including James MacMillan and Judith Bingham and the conductor herself. Sleep, Holy Babe
(8.572868), Blossom Street's last album with Naxos, was selected as one of ClassicFM's
Christmas CDs of the Year.
