Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Think of 'Yule' as a holiday from the holidays. Brimming with music meant to warm the heart, soothe the soul and raise the spirit, it's centuries removed from the modern rush and crush of Christmas ...to hear Barnes and Hampton's graceful and evocative arrangements of 'Merrily On High', 'Un Flambeau Jeannette Isabella', 'The Wexford Carol' and 'Here We Come A-Wassailing' is to realize why this music continues to endure, inspire and refresh." -- The Washington Post "Think of 'Yule' as a holiday from the holidays.
