Originally released in 2016, this seasonal offering from British husband and wife duo Ben and Anita Tatlow begins in familiar territory with the latter's pure voice adorning an ethereal snatch of "O Come, O Come Emmanuel" before the pair offer up a selection of new songs that reflect the potential for peace and tranquillity at Christmastime with wistful numbers like "Shine So Bright" and "White Forests" being cases in point. Refreshingly, the Tatlows are never too on the nose when it comes to referencing Christmas with the title track being a fine piece whatever the season whilst the characteristically freeform "O Come Let Us Adore Him (The Day Has Dawned)" - based around "O Come All Ye Faithful" - closes this festive offering with a difference.
