 So different! January 18, 2014 By Dorothea Collins (Saline, MI) See All My Reviews "I absolutely love this CD! It is so very different from all my other Christmas CD's, yet has some of the old familiar carols. My favorite track is No. 1 - Of the Father's Love Begotten. I shared this with my bell choir director because it is so haunting, yet beautiful!" Report Abuse
