With two OBE-holders on the call sheet – actress Janet McTeer and composer Rachel Portman – M&S’ Christmas With Love must be the most decorated (and most dramatic?) spot of the year.

“Even though Mrs Claus is a heroic figure who flies a helicopter to deliver last minute presents, we didn’t want the film to suddenly turn into an action movie. There had to be a constant and compassionate voice throughout.”

So says Native Music’s Dan Neale, who put Academy Award winning composer Portman forward because of her proven ability to score a narrative.

With Love was recorded at Abbey Road with the Chamber Orchestra Of London under conductor Alistair King and, released though Universal, topped Classical iTunes chart.
