 Beautiful Music January 9, 2014 By Thomas M. (Bogota, NJ) See All My Reviews "The Oxford Camerata present a marvelous collection of medieval carols beautifully performed. The carols are a mix of religious and secular, French, Latin, and English. Each is a gem by itself. Together, the collection is exquisite. Highly recommended." Report Abuse
