American Record Guide, November 2011

There’s something magical about the combination of a particularly sweet and accomplished soprano voice and the scintillating sonorities of a well-played harp. Naxos has blessed us here with an entire program of lullabies and carols that explore mostly the tender side of the season, interspersed by varied interludes for solo harp. …I hung, wonder-struck, on every note and nuance the whole way through—and I think you will, too.

There’s never any end to compilations of Christmas carols, but if you’d like an unhackneyed selection given a wonderfully understated treatment, look for “Lullabies and Carols for Christmas” on Naxos, with soprano Monica Whicher accompanied on harp by Judy Loman. The twenty-one tracks include a solid mix of the familiar and rarely heard, along with a couple of harp solos—and Naxos remains the lowest-priced label for new recordings and always delivers quality performances.

Lullabies and Carols for Christmas (Naxos) features Loman’s arrangements for soprano and harp of such traditional favourites as the Coventry Carol, In the Bleak Mid-Winter; Bulalow, In Dulce Jubilo, and the Wexford Carol along with seasonal solo harp pieces by Britten and Tournier.
