Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
The performances by the amateur choir of adults and children are pleasant and earnest. They sound cute. The instrumental accompaniments are inventive and more professional, mixing period instruments and modern brass. Perhaps the best performances are by Christa Patton, who plays the traditional Galician gaitas, a small set of bagpipes traditionally used to accompany dances and songs. I would recommend this recording to anyone who wants to add color to a Christmas playlist.
