In 2020, two British teenagers, Myron and Archie, former boy choristers with the renowned Magdalen College Choir, Oxford, recorded a very special album of music arranged for the unusual ensemble of treble duet. Myron and Archie’s debut album LOVE IS…. was released in July 2020 and was met with immediate acclaim, with Sir Simon Rattle describing it as “REALLY beautiful…. This CD is, unsurprisingly, wonderfully performed.”

There’s a poignant back story to LOVE IS… and its follow up album Love Came Down at Christmas, which will be released on 3 December. Myron’s elder brother Kasper was born on Christmas Day but at Christmas 2020 he turned 16 in hospital after being diagnosed with a rare and aggressive childhood cancer. Witnessing first hand his brother’s illness and gruelling treatment, Myron and his friend Archie (a BBC Young Chorister of the Year semi-finalist) decided to record an album to raise money for childhood cancer research.

Love Came Down at Christmas is a stunning new recording of Christmas music. Combining the charm of the familiar with the excitement of new discoveries, Love Came Down at Christmas brings together folk carols and premiere recordings across five languages, specially arranged for the rare and beautiful sound of the treble duet. In addition to its fundraising aim, the album pays tribute to the loss and suffering of the COVID pandemic during which it was created. The album centres on a new setting of the text of Christina Rosetti’s poem ‘Love Came Down at Christmas’, composed by Olivier award-winning composer Michael Haslam especially for Myron and Archie. This lovely setting of a much-loved poem reverberates with the anticipation, exaltation, hope and peace of Christmas.
