    Simply Remarkable

    I have 9 of their CD's . This one is the best . Four exquisite voices , painstaking research , facinating liner notes , all of their music has this in common . What sets this apart is the clairity of the recording . Each of these ladies have amazing voices that come alive with a good set of speakers . All of the reverberations and harmonics are there , and in phase . Turn it up and listen to the crispness of each voice on every note . This is one of my favorite CD's of all time .

    Chritmas Joy!!

    I had never heard Medeival Christmas Music before and I am so happy that the Anonymous 4 have taken the time and effort to record and preserve some of that music for all future generations. This music has a far different Christmas sound than what we have known for past few hundred years and it is much more perfect for Christian Religious observances of the Christmas Season. I wholeheartedly recommend this album to anyone who loves the Gregorian style of music and the Christmas Season.
