Notes and Editorial Reviews

What makes these 'Classical Carols' particularly ear-catching is the brilliant manner in which Carolyne M. Taylor juxtaposes the tuneful music from both genres. To match the music harmonically and melodically is a challenge in itself. Ms. Taylor hs a unique gift in combining the two genres, and has chosen the best possible piano repertoire from the Baroque, Classical and Romantic periods to coincide with the holiday music. These are truly 'Classical Carols' in every sense, and it is a sheer joy to share them with you.
