John Rutter chose "Born on a New Day" as one of his 5 top carols from the last 20 years. He writes: "This simple, touching carol came into being when King's Singer Philip Lawson wrote a Christmas text to John David's 1990 song "You are the New Day". With Peter Knight's perfect choral arrangement, a new Christmas classic was born."

"..his work is unfailingly sensitive. There is simple integrity to the basic melodies which resists sophisticated "interpretation", yet Lawson manages to introduce variety: neat dynamic detailing... and intriguing use of unusual harmonies."
