Description

One of the most successful, iconic and talented artists of the late 20th century is back like you've never heard her before. A Christmas Cornucopia is a collection of new, inspired interpretations of 11 traditional festive songs, rounded out by a new Lennox composition, Universal Child.

“I've known these songs, these carols all my life, I've sung them since I was little,” says the songwriter and singer of The Holly And The Ivy, Silent Night, The First Noel and other, lesswidely- known songs such as Il Est Ne Le Divin Enfant, and Lullay Lullay. “They're just in me.

They're a huge part of my life. So it's not an arbitrary selection. Those relationships with those pieces of music were there intrinsically before I approached the recording.”

The music on the album was mostly played by Lennox, in collaboration with co producer Mike Stevens, and recorded in his southwest London studio. To achieve the resonance and vibrancy that were integral to Lennox's ideas for these re-energized reboots, the pair also worked with a 30-piece orchestra and the African Children's Choir, a remarkable organization with which impassioned campaigner and activist Lennox has long had a relationship.
