CD Reviews

Short of Perfect
Laus tibi, Christe | 09/17/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"The CD is titled Catholic Christms Classics with soul inspiring pieces such as "Lo, How a Rose E'er Blooming", "Puer natus in Bethlehem", "Bring a Torch, Jeanette, Isabella", "Gabriel's Message", "The Virgin's Slumber Song", and the most moving rendition of "Night of Silence/Silent Night" that I have ever heard.

However, the addition of "Go Tell it on the Mountain" was far from appropriate for a CD entitled "Catholic Christmas Classics". First of all the tune is not a Classic. Second, it is not Catholic. The hand clappin' little ditty is so far out of place among these great works that you will find yourself skipping it over and over again. The awe and wonder of the Savior's Birth is captured in the other pieces and creates an Almost Perfect Catholic Christmas CD."

"Excellent music, excellently orchestrated. Some of the pieces are done a capella. The review above says something about Go Tell it On the Mountain being a hand-clapping little ditty. There is no hand clapping in this CD. It is all classically sung. Go Tell it on the Mountain *is* a classic Christmas tune, if not Catholic. And I have sung it at a Catholic mass. It is not illegal to sing tunes from other Christian religions. These are wonderful renditions of classic Christmas carols directed by Richard Proulx."

"Was pleased with the quality, selection and choral music. It brought back positive memories of my early years of participation in the parish choir. If you enjoy traditional Catholic music and hymns, this CD is noteworthy. C. Wong of Hawaii"
