A Christmas Carol CD by Debbie McAndrew and Ashley Thompson
A Cantata based on the novella by Charles Dickens.
Words by Debbie McAndrew
Music by Ashley Thompson
Performed by The Phoenix Singers
This retelling through song, without narration, of Charles Dickens' classic tale, draws on a wide variety of styles - some old, some new - whilst also incorporating well-loved carols that would have been known in Victorian England. Its is at the same time contemporary and rich in tradition.
The Phoenix Singers are a last established choir based in Leek, Staffordshire Moorlands, UK.
