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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

The songs on this album are beautifully performed and a joy to listen to during the Christmas season. However, the CD seems to have been recorded at a very low volume because in order to actually hear anything you will need to turn your volume up higher than normal. I tried playing this CD in different devices and had the same result, so just be prepared to turn up the volume on this one. Otherwise it is a great CD.

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.
