If it's excitement you crave, look no further than Roderick Williams's latest offering, which sets verse by Robert Seatter - The Star has Come with a flash and a zoom / The star has come out of the night now into this room. The musical phrases take their cue from the interval of a second, and this short work positively fizzes along. Singers will have great fun with the portamenti at the beginning and end of the piece. Nothing like a slide atChristmas . . .
