The re-issue of A Christmas Cornucopia will be released via Island Records on November 20 to mark its 10 year anniversary. I hope this recording will at least offer some comfort and nostalgia, but also an awareness that political leaders, religious leaders and everyone around the world must face up to the question of how many more Christmases we have left to spend on this blighted earth.
