Although it is a little predictable, the Cambridge Singers & Orchestra' Christmas Star is an entertaining collection of familiar holiday tunes and carols, all professionally performed by the Cambridge Singers. This is good, straight a cappella holiday music and should satisfy fans of that style, even if it isn't an exceptional record.

20 ††The Christmas Song (3' 56") Mel Tormé and Robert Wells arranged by John Rutter. 21 We wish you a merry Christmas (1' 48") English traditional carol arranged by John Rutter. 22 †O come, all ye faithful (3' 58") J. F. Wade (c. 1710–1786) arranged by John Rutter. Burke & Van Heusen In. USA, Warner/Chappell Music Lt. London. The Cambridge Singers. 20 The Christmas Song. Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Jack Frost nipping at your nose, Yuletide carols being sung by a choir And folks dressed up like Eskimos. Ev’rybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe Help to make the season bright. Tiny tots with their eyes all a-glow Will find it hard to sleep tonight.

The Cambridge Singers is an English mixed voice chamber/choral group formed in 1981 by their director John Rutter with the primary purpose of making recordings under their own label "Collegium". The group initially comprised former singers from Clare College, where Rutter had previously been the music director. They have been involved in the last four Fresh Aire albums (about "mankind's curiosities") of the Mannheim Steamroller band, by composer Chip Davis, but they are primarily a classical choral group.
