Fresh Arrangements
As a lover of choral music, you will enjoy these new arrangements of your favorite Christmas carols. Not only are they interesting arrangements, the harmonies and melodies are innovative and fresh. You may not be able to sing along like you normally would, but this disc will soon become one of your favorites at Christmas. The VocalEssence Singers & Chorus are top notch and prove their worth as a choral group to take note of.
