    a 20 year search has ended....

    I heard this album upon its release 20 years ago. The ensuing search for a copy of the CD yielded nothing for many years. How long this disc has been available here in the US I'm not aware of, but I can share this; that this is one of the greatest of European Christmas albums ever recorded.

    Orphei Drangar (The Sons of Orpheus) directed by Robert Sund is elite group of singers. The songs are lovely, the music-making joyful, sensitive, touching and the recorded sound outstanding!

    Before this CD disappears again, grab a copy and be thrilled to its sounds during your Christmas holidays!
