Format: Audio CD
The CD is titled Catholic Christms Classics with soul inspiring pieces such as "Lo, How a Rose E'er Blooming", "Puer natus in Bethlehem", "Bring a Torch, Jeanette, Isabella", "Gabriel's Message", "The Virgin's Slumber Song", and the most moving rendition of "Night of Silence/Silent Night" that I have ever heard.

However, the addition of "Go Tell it on the Mountain" was far from appropriate for a CD entitled "Catholic Christmas Classics". First of all the tune is not a Classic. Second, it is not Catholic. The hand clappin' little ditty is so far out of place among these great works that you will find yourself skipping it over and over again. The awe and wonder of the Savior's Birth is captured in the other pieces and creates an Almost Perfect Catholic Christmas CD.

Was pleased with the quality, selection and choral music. It brought back positive memories of my early years of participation in the parish choir. If you enjoy traditional Catholic music and hymns, this CD is noteworthy. C. Wong of Hawaii

I absolutely love this CD and highly, highly recommend it to everyone. I put it in the Bose, hit 'shuffle disc/repeat' and enjoyed it for hours while decorating the house with a renewed song in my heart. Even though it has many classic Christmas songs, The Cathedral Singers make it a pleasure to listen to them again and again. Such beautiful, inspiring voices and so wonderfully conducted by the departed master, Richard Proulx. And in between are several favorites you may or may not have 'heard once before' or 'a long time ago'. You must add this to your Christmas music collection for it will be in your Top 10 CD's that get played each year, no matter how many you may already own. A perfect gift for anyone you know who appreciates good music: symphonic, vocal, liturgical and whether they're a performer, director or just listening.

Received this as a Christmas gift in 2010. I must give this one 5 stars out of 5. The choir harmonizes beautifully. Excellent arrangements. The recording quality is superb. I have listened to a few too many choral CD's where the production quality has been neglected so I was quite pleased with this effort. No skimping on quantity either either (72 minutes). Soothing for the soul during the hectic holiday season. I highly recommend this CD.

If you are a traditional Catholic you will love this CD. Beautiful Christmas music that reminds you of the true meaning of Christmas. I enjoy it so much I've bought several copies for my friends and family.

Not being Catholic, but loving Christmas hymns, after seeing the song titles, I bought this on a whim. I figured if I hated it, I could give it to my Catholic Auntie. Well, let's just say she can get her own. These hymns are beautifully arranged and sung, and made me feel like it was really Christmas. Yes, there were a couple of songs I'd never heard of (that may have been the "Catholic" tie-in), but while I didn't love those songs, they in no way detracted from the overall CD. While the title may have drawn the attention (in a positive way) of some Catholics, don't let the title put you off if that's not your personal belief system. If you love truly traditional Christmas hymns, this will make your heart sing along.

My son bought me this for Christmas because he says I come home each Sunday from mass humming the music. I just love the melodies, its soothing and beautiful. Im still playing it long after the season is over.

No Santa Clause, Frosty or White Christmas here. Just traditional Catholic tunes. Just sit back and listen to them as you admire your Christmas tree and reflect of the true meaning of Christmas.
