Yorkshire folk singer Kate Rusby and Christmas go together like turkey and cranberry sauce, so here we have her third festive album after Sweet Bells (2008) and While Mortals Sleep (2011) - and it's another joyous celebration of the season.
Sweet Bells, her own take on While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks by Night, is a real Christmas classic in the making, while, in addition to the well-known carols, there was also a selection of traditional South Yorkshire songs, with a couple of tracks from 20 added into the mix for good measure.
