Notes & Reviews:

For more than 25 years, the Pro Arte singers have been recognized as an outstanding chamber chorus. This recording of Christmas music is for the benefit of Save The Children.

"I like The Singers' rich, moody, and soft-edged harmonies...[the Pro Arte Singers] are exceptionally well-trained and well-coached (by famed musical director Arthur Sjögren). On this remarkably entertaining live recording, the Singers are joined by the Pro Arte Festival Orchestra. While the sound of the Pro Arte Singers lacks for nothing, still their sound receives a boost from The Orchestra, which yields an enriched musicality to this endeavor. Acoustically, Christmas with is a complete coup, as the lofty sound of choir and chamber orchestra weave a seamless tapestry of old-fashioned churchiness. I loved it." -ChristmasReviews.com
