Critics' Comments

American Record Guide “Here they offer a well-crafted and inspiring program of mostly familiar sacred music ... Their crisp and accurate traversal of such tricky pieces as the ‘Gloria’ movement of American master Daniel Pinkham’s popular Christmas Cantata proves their technical facility. The boys sound smooth and sweet, and they get rich and balanced support from the men. They are clearly recorded, and we get full texts. If you're looking for this style and sound of Christmas music, you can confidently buy American for a change.” - Koob


Journal of the Association of Anglican Musicians The Memphis Brass Ensemble and Ceruti String Quartet provide both expert playing and welcome changes of sound. The choir has an especial warmth of tone, and the recording was superbly produced by Frederick Hohman. - Victor Hill
