Notes and Editorial Reviews

"The Washington Men's Camerata perform a winning combination of modern settings of traditional favorites and new Christmas music...The Washington Symphonic Brass gives strong and brilliant support, as does Eric Plutz at the organ. The Washington Men excel in this close harmony, glee-club style of singing - smooth, warm, mostly mellow, and precisely balanced." - American Record Guide "The Washington Men's Camerata perform a winning combination of modern settings of traditional favorites and new Christmas music...The Washington Symphonic Brass gives strong and brilliant support, as does Eric Plutz at the organ.
