 Wonderful addition to Christmas  January 23, 2012 By Kris M. (Seattle, WA) See All My Reviews "I heard a selection from this album on our local classical station. #11 is a take off of the 12 days of Christmas focused on different composers. Absolutely delightful. I bought the album. The rest of the album is also a delight. Highly recommend. Bought several more of the albums as gifts to my family." Report Abuse
