Christmas Star: Carols for the Christmas Season

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Although it is a little predictable, the Cambridge Singers & Orchestra' Christmas Star is an entertaining collection of familiar holiday tunes and carols, all professionally performed by the Cambridge Singers. This is good, straight a cappella holiday music and should satisfy fans of that style, even if it isn't an exceptional record.
