Notes and Editorial Reviews

Sing Noel with Gloriæ Dei Cantores is a Christmas treat from beginning to end! The album opens with Sing Noel - a colorful set of carols moving seamlessly from one to another. From Caroling, Caroling to My Dancing Day and The Holly and the Ivy - this recording brings the listener a traditional Christmas experience that will brighten Christmas cheer and warm hearts.

"Exudes professionalism and emotion from every pore."
—Carol Swanson, Christmasreviews.com
". . . And so I listened – The First Noel came and went as did I Wonder as I Wander. . .lush, rich and – well, was it my imagination or did I see the ghost of Jimmy Stewart, eyes twinkling. . . "
—Jonathan Woolf, Musicweb.uk
"The choral artistry for which Gloriae Dei Cantores has become known can be heard in each selection. The ageless and profound wonder of Christmas comes alive with the singing of each word and the playing of each note."
—Wallace Cheatham, Christianity and the Arts
