New arrangements of well-known carols?

User Rating: / 0
I would appreciate any suggestions for 20th/21st century arrangements of well-known "standard" Christmas carols, probably still choral. For an atheist I do adore carol singing, but mainly only know about the type of stuff we sung in my 80s Anglican primary school. I just heard Come Thou Long Expected Jesus, for the first time, in THIS gorgeous version and was surprised how stodgy and four-to-the-floor the more traditional version is in contrast.
What other modern i.e. post-Victorian arrangements of choral carols are there that are much better than what your average British congregation belts out or famous cathedral choir drones? Not pop or electro, not unserious. Particularly welcome versions on the more reflective/meditative side.
