Notes & Reviews:

Our Heart's Joy is an uplifting celebration of the music of Christmas, including works ranging from Renaissance motets to African-American spirituals and traditional carols. These favorite selections from two "vintage" Chanticleer CDs (including Franz Biebl's "Ave Maria," one of Chanticleer's most-requested performances) are being reissued by popular demand in a newly remastered version to take advantage of current audio technology. "An unforgettable Christmas disc... deserves a place in the collection of all devotees of Renaissance choral music." - GRAMOPHONE
