Notes & Reviews:

The Holidays are here with a full length album featuring artists from Opening Day Records performing Christmas songs both familiar and new! Like holly and ivy or Santa and Rudolf, the Canadian Brass and holiday music are one of the great pairings in history. Just as people wonder how it is that Santa Claus is able to visit every house on Christmas Eve, they also wonder how it is that the Brass seems to play every concert hall in North America in December! Transcending the boundaries of traditional chamber music performance, the Brass has reached legendary status in the musical world. It is nearly impossible to pass the holiday season without experiencing the Canadian Brass - their holiday albums have reached the same sales levels as those of Bing Crosby, Luciano Pavarotti and Nat King Cole.
