David Mellor returns to the best of this year's seasonal releases and picks his Christmas Album of 2013.
Tonight David Mellor continues his review of the best of the Christmas album releases - with a turkey or two along the way.
There's unusual early Christmas music to look forward to as well as something contemporary from Bob Chilcott. How about a lusty rendition of a favourite carol from Dublin? And, to cap it all, David's pick of his outstanding Christmas Album of 2013.
Bach: Christmas Oratorio
Katherine Watson/Iestyn Davies/James Gilchrist/Matthew Brook/Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment/Trinity College Choir Cambridge/Stephen Layton
David's verdict: "I don't think one can play this wonderful, wonderful album too often."
Christmas with Vox Cordis
David's verdict: "A very nice album."
On a Cold Winter's Day: Early Christmas Music and Carols from the British Isles
Elisabeth Kaplan/Quadriga Consort

David's verdict: "This is a good crossover piece. Well worth hearing."
Bob Chilcott: The Rose in the Middle of Winter
David's verdict: "A really delightful album. Very touching."
Joshua Bell and Friends
Christmas from Dublin
David Leigh (organ)/Saint Patrick's Cathedral Choir, Dublin/Stuart Nicholson
David's verdict: "I like this album. If you want traditional Christmas music sung by a cathedral choir, this is good."
