Gramophone magazine review (December 1961):

“It is not so long ago that we had Frank Pettingell reading A Christmas Carol, and, of course, Bransby Williams' famous impersonation of Scrooge is rightly still available. Now here comes Sir Ralph Richardson illuminating a narrative beautifully read by Paul Scofield. Sir Ralph is very fine here, particularly at the end, where his asides spell out the consummate actor that he is. This record is, of course, only of extracts, but the kernel of the story is here, and there is enough detail to give the flavour of the writing.”
