Notes & Reviews:

As the title suggests, Christmas in the Morning: A Celebration in Brass collects renditions of holiday favorites by brass ensembles like Canadian Brass, the Michael Laird Brass Ensemble, and the Philip Jones Brass Ensemble. Ranging from lively pieces like "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing," "Good King Wenceslas," and "Sleepers Awake!" to reverent versions of "O Come All Ye Faithful," "Away in a Manger," and "The First Noel," it's an elegant yet festive collection of Christmas music. ~ Heather Phares
