Their music is incredibly varied and guaranteed to truly entertain your guests whether it's background for a dinner or drinks reception, or a full-blown concert.

What you'll get when you hire the quartet:

* incredibly versatile range of music

A child is born in Bethlehem

Away in a manger

Adam lay abounden

Deck the halls

Ding dong merrily on high

Gabriel’s message

God rest ye merry gentlemen

Hark the herald angels sing

In dulci jubilo

In the bleak midwinter

Nativity carol

O come all ye faithful

O come, o come Emmanuel

O holy night

O little town of Bethlehem

Once in royal david’s city

Personent hodie

Quem Pastorum

Sans day carol

See amid the winter’s snow

Shepherd’s pipe

Silent night

The first noel

The Holly and the ivy

We wish you a merry Christmas
