The Night Before Christmas is a clever collection of unusual secular music compiled by Naxos's resident light music guru, Philip Lane. The programme opens with Lane s arrangement of Mozart senior's Sleigh Ride and ends, rather disappointingly perhaps, with his reconstruction of the over-long music Doreen Carwithen wrote in the Fifties for an Oscar-nominated short on the Twelve Days Of Christmas. Among the plums in between is Lane's own Night Before Christmas with Stephen Fry narrating, and a splendid discovery, Samuel Coleridge-Taylor of Hiawatha fame's Christmas Overture. The BBC Concert Orchestra play well for their Principal Conductor, Barry Wordsworth.
