 Christmas Goes Baroque II December 27, 2012 By C. MacDonald (Clifton, VA) See All My Reviews "This was a wonderful addition for the holidays and great selection of music. This was not as good as Baroque I and we will be interested in subsequent versions. Baroque II was priced much higher than Baroque I and I don't think warrented." Report Abuse
