Edlos : WinterSongs
The Edlos are first-rate technical singers who amuse themselves and their zealous followers with zany antics and offbeat lyrics.

For this special Christmas collection enjoy the Appalachian traditional, "Talkin' About Sufferin' Here Below," a Ukrainian carol, "Carol Of The Bells," "Big Santa (The Visit)," and "Sim Shalom," among others. This male quartet makes everything they do sound easy and casual, but listen intently: the whole is fashioned with the utmost of precision, and scholarship that takes years to acquire.

Essentials : Remember December
Here's a group that shows that the uniquely American style of doo wop can be sung from over the border as this Canadian group's latest Christmas CD is a gem. More like doo-wop tinged there is both great singing (what a bass!) and arrangements that are a standout from the usual Christmas fair. It has been quite awhile since their previous release and time has seasoned them well as they have been performing steadily for years. There is the occasional very light accompaniment but vocals are very much front and center on this holiday treat.
Songlist: White Christmas, Winter Wonderland, Remember December, What Child Is This?, The First Noel, Little Drummer Boy, The Christmas Song, O Holy Night, Jingle Bell Rock, Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree, Happy Christmas

Go Fish : More Than A Story
The four young men of Go Fish have a polished, tight and professional sound, and though they are contemporary Christian, with a lyrical emphasis on a message that can't be missed, they have much in common with Rockapella and the Blenders. Indeed, the Blenders' own Darren Rust mixed this CD, which includes half original compositions, as well as holiday perennials such as 'Angels We Have Heard On High,' 'Silent Night,' and 'Away In The Manger,' though, in the case of 'Angels,' the Go Fish version is a 90's dance-mix. Likewise, 'Silent Night' is only recognizable by the words - the rhythm, melody and harmonization has been created anew. 'More Than A Story' is a musical dramatization, with a newscaster's voiceover, telling the tale of the birth of Jesus. Includes drum and percussion accompaniment.
Songlist: Silent Night, O, Holy Night, Zechariah's Song, Angels We Have Heard On High, Away In A Manger, More Than a Story, Mary Did You Know?, Go Tell It To The Mountain, I Beleive In You, The Grinch Song

Inpulse's rich, soulful sound is sure to warm your heart this holiday season.

Vox Musica : Christmas Colours
Vox Musica is a 13-strong, women's choral ensemble from Sacramento, CA, directed by Daniel Paulsen, and "Christmas Colours" was recorded in Sacramento's St. Paul's Episcopal Church. We could tell we were hearing something very special here with the first of 12 Christmas tunes, John Tavener's difficult, soaring and often dissonant "A Nativity" and Cesar Carrillo's "Ave Maria," which the group handled beautifully and easily. A very sweet 17th Century German Carol, "Es Sungen Drei Engel," the lilting, joyous "Gaudete, a 16th Century Finnish Carol, Franz Biebl's lovely "Zundet An Das Licht," Tavener's "The Lord's Prayer," the 16th Century Irish melody "Love Came Down At Christmas," Nancy Telfer's 4-part "Missa Brevis" and "Silent Night," nicely arranged by Paulsen, completed the album. Many of these songs are new to us, and we were surprised and delighted to hear them. Listen to the echoing, soaring song of angels, "Love Came Down At Christmas," and you will see what we mean!
