Notes & Reviews:

America's leading college devoted to choral and sacred music presents this 2nd recording of Christmas favorites for choir, organ and hand bells. The Westminster Concert Bell Choir performs on the largest range of hand bells in the world. It has appeared on Public Television's Mister Rogers' Neighborhood and several holiday broadcasts of NBC's Today show. Last December they joined Groban to perform The Bells of New York for the national broadcast of the tree lighting at Rockefeller Center.
