Not just for Christmas
Review By AG90730,January 2014

A perfect compilation valid for any time of year.

Lots of Music!
Review By EP116282,September 2014

As with many compilations, this is a bit of a mixed bag, but at the price worth buying. Some of the usual suspects (Nutcracker, Messiah) make up a substantial portion of the 12 hours, but the recordings of those standards for the holiday are good ones. Several fine recordings of unusual holiday music (Ryba's Mass for example), make for interesting listening. Probably not the best choice for background music at a holiday party as there are too many pieces that demand careful attention, still this is a worthwhile album for listening in more contemplative moments during the darkest time of year.
