Richard Hickox - Vaughan Williams: Fantasia on Christmas; The First Nowell; On Christmas Night album download
One is a world premiere: the 1926 On Christmas Night, a masque adopted from Dickens' A Christmas Carol. One is a world premiere in this form: the 1912 Fantasia on Christmas Carols in an arrangement for strings and organ. The last is just rarely recorded: The First Nowell, A Nativity Play. All three take traditional English Christmas carols as their basis and elaborate their form from there. All three receive excellent performances from the forces under Richard Hickox's direction.

Richard Hickox. In the early 1980s, I purchased a used, record club LP of Vaughan Williams' nativity play "The First Nowell. I've played the LP several times each Christmas and hoped eventually for a CD version to appear. This new performance under Richard Hickox's direction should bring a similar joy to listeners as I've experienced! The CD also includes the familiar "Fantasia on Christmas Carols" but in a previously unrecorded arrangement for organ and strings. The other premier recording is Vaughan Williams' "On Christmas Night," a lovely masque from.

Album title: Vaughan Williams. Composer(s): Vaughan Williams. The mere mention of Christmas inspired him,’ it was said of Vaughan Williams late in life. He had a passion for carols. Of the three results of that passion here, the familiar 1912 Fantasia is recorded for the first time with its alternative orchestration for strings and organ – though, wisely, still with the bells near the end. On Christmas Night, a 1926 ballet score which fits traditional carols and dance tunes to the story of Dickens’s A Christmas Carol, is also a premiere recording. On home ground here, Richard Hickox obtains excellent performances from his own City of London Sinfonia, the fresh-voiced Joyful Company of Singers, and two fine soloists. Good sound, too – though Roderick Williams’s Watchman should surely have been offstage in On Christmas Night.
