This collection has a real Yorkshire flavour and includes some of the Sheffield carols, traditionalluy sung in Sheffield pubs at this time of year. It also includes arrangements by the Chorus's gifted Music Director, Darius Battiwalla, of such Christmas classics as Joy to The World and O Holy Night, a firm favourite at our annual Christmas concerts at Sheffield City Hall.
