    Outstanding variety, clarity, quality!

    Consider these CD's if you want a collection of Christmas music that features a variety of superb singing and instrumental groups. Listening to these CD's truly helps relieve the hustle and bustle of the season which, while fun, keeps us from the true spirit of Christmas. The clarity of the music and words is excellent.
