'With voices as bright as winter sun on snow, Juice Vocal Ensemble's seasonal album sparkles'
BBC Music Magazine

'[...] as intimate a Christmas disc as you'll find [...] Each of the new numbers is a winner [...] you can't quite believe you're hearing only three voices. The arrangements are nifty, too'
The Arts Desk

'[...] spare and haunting [...] songs of winter (including a few carols, wonderfully refreshed) for a white landscape'
The Observer
