 nice recording April 21, 2013 By S. Owen (Dallas, TX) See All My Reviews "The only reason I rated it 3 stars is that there is only one choral selection out of twelve on the recording. This disk was recommended to me and otherwise it it very nice, but I was hoping for an entire disk of choral waltzes. An informative booklet tells the stories of the selections which makes the music even more enjoyable." Report Abuse
