 Christmas carols the way they should be performed January 16, 2014 By Nicholas R. (Mt Royal, QC) See All My Reviews "I share the feelings of the preceding reviewers. My main diappointment was the total absence of vocal solos which work well with some carols. I also found the sound a bit on the harsh side, surprising considering this is a DDD recording."

 Old fashion Christmas December 16, 2012 By Elizabeth Calhoun (Clinton, MD) See All My Reviews "Simply an enjoyable CD of true Christmas music!" Report Abuse
 Good standard Christmas music December 13, 2012 By Debbie K. (Greenville, SC) See All My Reviews "This is the kind of album you can play for your Christmas party or in the background while trimming the tree. Most of the music will be familiar to most people. Overall, the singing is good, although sometimes a bit prosaic, and occasionally lacking a sense of line. Still well worth purchasing." Report Abuse
