CD Reviews

An Excellent Alternative
R. Webb | Brooksville, Fl. United States | 11/20/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is not a "run of the mill" Christmas CD. These pieces were written hundreds of years before Christmas Carols became popular. Plainsong chant and insturmental excellence abound. This cd even has medieval drumming. I listen to this one all year around."
Christmas - merry and devout!

"Renz and his gang come up with great pieces that anyone can love, and they bring real spirit to it. Their concerts in NY are always a lot of fun. Check out their Ren. & Baroque Christmas CDs, too."
