 Christmas as it should be June 21, 2012 By L. Lew (Muskegon, MI) See All My Reviews "This CD is one of my top two favorite Chanticleer recordings. As with all Chanticleer performances, this one is stunningly beautiful in its blend, ensemble, and interpretation. For my taste, nothing sounds more enriching than the music of the Renaissance, particularly the motets and anthems of Christmas. I regularly return to this CD (and not only at Christmas) and revel in the sound of Chanticleer." Report Abuse
