Renaissance Holiday

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rodney Batdorf
Renaissance Holiday is a cool variation on the traditional "Fresh Aire" sound. Mannheim Steamroller tackles olde Renaissance music in their familiar style, and while that occasionally can sound a little strange -- this was not music made to be played by synthesizers -- it is very, very intriguing and a very refreshing spin on their signature sound.

    Food for the imagination

    Having been drawn to Renaissance music for a very long time, this CD caught my attention - and held it. Some parts were hauntingly familiar, others were new and intriguing. Granted, the melodies were coming from an iPod, but they have a way of transporting the listener back to a time when the true meaning and spirit of the season were treated with reverence and respect.
