Summary

Summary

Evoking the themes and spirit of the popular British television series, Christmas at Downton Abbey is a two-disc set featuring holiday music inspired by the show and its characters. Including an exclusive seasonal suite from composer John Lunn that incorporates elements from his iconic title theme, the collection also contains vocal performances from cast members Elizabeth McGovern (Lady Cora), Julian Ovenden (Charles Blake), who each provide solo pieces then duet together on "The First Noel." There is also a special reading of "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" by the richly baritoned cast member Jim Carter (Mr. Carson). The rest of the collection is largely made up of classical and choral selections by the Choir of King's College, Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, Alexander Lazarev, and more. Full of uplifting warmth and the kind of thrilling opulence befitting the fictional Crawley family and their servants, fans will find Christmas at Downton Abbey to be a fine seasonal companion to this much-loved show. ~ Timothy Monger
