 Great Christmas CD January 18, 2018 By Cynthia C. (Gainesville, VA) See All My Reviews "What drew me to this CD was the rendition of "Silent Night" that I heard on the radio. But after I purchased the CD and listened to it, the entire CD is wonderful. I've always loved choral music and this CD did not disappoint! Took me back to my junior high school days and the choir I sang in many years ago. This music is timeless. The Cathedral Choral Society is top-notch." Report Abuse
