August 14th, 2015 in a sweltering studio on the hottest day of the year. London’s finest drilled into the cavernous studio 1 at Abbey Road to commence recording A Christmas Fantasia.
Drawing on familiar symphonic forces and full choir, this album was intended to foster the grandeur and nostalgia of a colourful, magical Christmas.
Perenially heard across all media, this dynamic offering flits between the joyous “Grand Fantasia” with its familiar quotations from well loved carols and the mysterious “Night Magic” a dark, choral offering. The scale of “Wonder Land” contrasts with the rhythmic, percussive drive of “Winter Festival” and the intimacy of “Star Of Light”.
