"Just before Christmas last year, WCRB, the top classical musicstation in Boston played a selection from the Sylvia Woods "ThreeHarps for Christmas" CD. It was the most lovely thing I had heard in a long time....a lone harp, so pure and so angelic! I searched for this CD in stores locally, but no one carried the album; most had never even heard of it. It has taken me seven months to find it here on Amazon.com, but when I did, I immediately ordered both volumes. They are both splendid! I have listened to them over and over again since they arrived (and it's July!) The music is simply heavenly and seems to tumble so fluidly and unforgettably from her harp. It has all the magic and anticipation and joy of Christmas there within. It will be a forever favorite that I shall treasure for every Christmas to come."
Lovely Christmas Album

"I had almost the same experience as the first reviewer: heard this music on the classical radio station at christmas time some years ago (KXPR in Sacramento, CA), and had been searching for it ever since. It is surprising how beautiful these oft-heard melodies sound in this setting, and how strongly the spirit of christmas comes through them. A simply enchanting album."
