Notes & Reviews:

The Bach Choir's Family Carols is a fairly standard choral Christmas album. There are no twists and turns in the arrangements, and the carols are all quite familiar. That's not a bad thing, however, if you're interested in finding a sturdy choral holiday album, since this fits the bill. You could find better, but this makes for pleasant background music. ~ Robert Lovering
