The Queen's Six 

With Lo, how a rose e'er blooming, The Queen’s Six release their third album on the Resonus label with a scintillating and varied programme of music for Christmas.

Both modern and traditional carols feature alongside a selection of lighter and contemplative evocations of the festive season, with music from composers as diverse as William Byrd, Henry VII, Kenneth Leighton, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Richard Rodney Bennett & Thomas Hewitt Jones.

Album Booklet (PDF)

'The disc is full of sensitively balanced, expressive performance, most of them sung unaccompanied…A jazzed-up God rest you merry, gentlemen and a chittering Jingle Bells bring fun into the equation, too. Recommended.'

- BBC Music Magazine

'The disc is full of sensitively balanced, expressive performance, most of them sung unaccompanied…A jazzed-up God rest you merry, gentlemen and a chittering Jingle Bells bring fun into the equation, too. Recommended.'
BBC Music Magazine

'Everything's wonderfully tasteful but never too reverential, and the Six throw in a pleasing selection of rarities. Witty arrangements of “God rest you merry, gentlemen” and “Let it snow” crop up near the close. All highly appealing, and predictably well-recorded.'
The Arts Desk

'Polished performances are given throughout in this eclectic mix of old and new, sacred and secular songs for Christmas.'
Lark Reviews

'A beautifully produced and sung disc, if this combination of repertoire appeals then this is for you.'
Planet Hugill

'[...] a few less well-known items add to the appeal. [...] the singing is very accomplished.'
