 Impeccable vocal singing expressing the finest de December 5, 2012 By Alexandra C. (Edgewater, MD) See All My Reviews "The musical expression, perfect tempos and nuances in this superior vocal album make it the epitome of vocal art in the Christmas genre. Never have I heard such a "tight" vocal ensemble, performing in superb teamwork and led by the great vocal conductor, Robert Shaw. I've been to hundreds of concerts, been a professional musician, and simply would not be able to enjoy Christmas without this particular traditional collection of carols with this fabulous performance."
