Acoustix : Cool Yule : 1 CD

Acoustix : Cool Yule

Acoustix are one of the most consistently impressive barbershop groups performing today. "Cool Yule," their first holiday-themed recording, will add to their legend. Greg Volk arranged several songs, including "You're A Mean One, Mr. Grinch," (sung by bass Joel Rutherford, who also contributed two arrangements). Two Beach Boys scores, "Auld Lang Syne" and "Little Saint Nick," and a Mervyn Warren (of Take 6) chart, "The First Noel," show the quartet's burgeoning versatility, and it sounds great. For those listeners who prefer Acoustix to stay close to their barbershop origins, the locked-in chords of "O Little Town Of Bethlehem" and "Mary Had A Baby" will be a treat. About half accompanied in swinging big band style.

Songlist: Cool Yule, Silver Bells, You're A Mean One, Mr. Grinch, The Christmas Song, Kay Thompson's Jingle Bells, Happy Holidays / Holiday Season Medley, The First Noel, Pine Cones and Holly Berries Medley, Little Saint Nick, O Little Town of Bethlehem, Mary Had a Baby, Auld Lang Syne

The Gas House Gang : Some Children See Him... : 1 CD

The Gas House Gang : Some Children See Him...    Out of Print

TWO YEARS IN THE MAKING!!! Perfection achieved!! Enough hyperbole already, you think to yourself? Not a chance...where's the thesaurus. Ok, we'll rein in our enthusiasm and resort to merely telling you about a Christmas album sung by one of the greatest barbershop quartets of our time. On this recording we listen to a quartet who achieves the tightest harmonies humanly possible apply those talents to traditional Christmas music. It's funny but as they aren't specifically singing barbershop chording, it is only occasionally that we remember just what tradition this fabulous singing springs from. Touches of jazz, elements of gospel reverence, and moments of almost operatic virtuosity abound throughout and all come together with vocal percussionist Jeff Thatcher of Rockapella adding his talents on "Go Tell It On the Mountain." We were also struck momentarily speechless when we found that, for the first time in quite a while, we actually enjoyed "The Little Drummer Boy" once more. The Gang rescues that song from the Christmas cul-de-sac of fruit-cake jokes with a beautiful rendition. What a tenor lead! You'll hear a fabulous Gregorianesque intro to "O Come Emanuel" which sounds as though it is emerging from a heavenly cathedral. The song list meanders through all of the Christmas spirit to arrive at the title track, "Some Children See Him." This is a wonderful message on which to leave, each child who sees Christ, sees Him in their own image...

Songlist: Caroling, Caroling, The Little Drummer Boy, Merry Christmas, Darling, Mary, Did You Know?, Pat-A-Pan, O Come Emmanuel, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, Carol Of The Bells, White Christmas, Do You Hear What I Hear?, Go Tell It To The Mountain, Some Children See Him, 'Twas The Night Before Christmas

Melodeers : It's a Wrap : 1 CD : Jim Arns

Melodeers : It's a Wrap

Since their formation in 1960, the Melodeers, a 125-member Sweet Adelines Chorus, have won the International Championship twice in succession (1997, 1998). Their energetic and vivacious style must also be credited to their redoubtable director, Jim Arns, who also wrote some of the arrangements. "Do You Hear What I Hear?" offers every imaginable variation (echo, contrast motion, swipes, modulation) of the familiar refrain, and sets up the grand finale with a turnaround, pushing the phrasing to make room for a zestful seventh chord and another key change. "Psalm 98/Shalom" begins on a long open note, gradually converging to the dominant; the subsequent section is a rapid fire allegro, broken by a repetitive adagio two-part interlude. Sound unconventional? It is. "Silent Night," "The Christmas Song" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" are among the many traditionals. The Chorus lets loose on "Jingle Bell Rock" and "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer."

Songlist: Jingle Bell Rock, Silent Night, The Christmas Song, Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer/ Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer Medley, Coventry Carol, A Holly Jolly Christmas, Do You hear What I Hear?, Carol Of The Bells, Psalm 98/ Shalom, The Christmas Song, It Came Upon A Midnight Clear, Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas, Christmas Chopstix, Jingle Bells, Hallelujah Chorus

Vocal Majority : The Secret of Christmas : 1 CD : Jim Clancy : VM6000

Vocal Majority : The Secret of Christmas

The Vocal Majority, along with the Masters of Harmony, are considered to be the best amongst barbershop choruses. Directed by Jim Clancy, these over one-hundred-fifty Texans' golden voices, complimented by guest vocalists or the occasional guitar or keyboard - such as on "Away In A Manger," or the languid stroll of "I'll Be Home For Christmas" - are perfectly synthesized. Their phrasing, enunciation and dynamics are beyond reproach, and their arrangements, many written by the aforementioned Clancy, emphasize tone color and quality, rather than a panoply of contrasting voice parts or acrobatic feats. Grace and beauty characterize the performance of the Vocal Majority.

Songlist: O Come All Ye Faithful, Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas, Jingle Bells / Sleigh Ride Medley, I'll Be Home For Christmas, Coventry Carol / Away In A Manger, The Lord's Prayer, Silent Night, Blue Christmas, The Christmas Song, I Wonder As I Wander, Cantique De Noel (O Holy Night), The Secret Of Christmas

Vocal Majority : White Christmas : 1 CD : Jim Clancy : VM14000

Vocal Majority : White Christmas

This celebrated chorus' third Christmas CD - eight time Society Champions, directed by Jim Clancy. Half-accompanied, we have to admit the a cappella tracks are our favorites: "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" (The Blenders' arrangement!), "What Child Is This," "Auld Lang Syne" and "Toyland." The Vocal Majority's power is such that they are most affecting as voices only - the tag of "Auld Lang Syne" is proof of that. Guest vocalists Steve and Wendy DeCrow warm up "Baby, It's Cold Outside," and Rumor's tenor, Charla Clare, graces "Ave Maria." Bob Chilcott of the King's Singers' "I Wander As I Wander" has a gorgeous string and woodwind score, and features Jeff Oxley.

Songlist: White Christmas, It's Beginning to look (a lot) Like Christmas / Pine Cones and Holly Berries, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Toyland, Baby, It's Cold Outside, Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Ave Maria, I Wonder As I Wander, What Child Is This?, Auld Lang Syne

Vocal Majority : Twelve Days Of Christmas : 1 CD : Jim Clancy : VM16000

Vocal Majority : Twelve Days Of Christmas

SPEBSQSA's current International Gold Medalists, their ninth such title since their founding in 1972, The Vocal Majority have the numbers and the talent and aren't afraid to use them! On their brand new "Twelve Days ofChristmas" you may be taken aback to hear what the liner notes call"magnificent orchestral accompaniment" on the first two songs, "WinterWonderland"and "Do You Hear What I Hear."Beautiful, but it's almost likewhipped cream on frosting, because the VM hardly need violins, having already cornered the magnificence market. The proof is in the a cappella numbers, especially "Songs of Christmas Medley," a wonderful "Carol of theBells," "The Christmas Song," an incredible "Jingle Bells/Sleigh RideMedley," the title tune, "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas," and a "Little Drummer Boy" to remember. Lush and rich as Christmas eggnog withrum and nutmeg, incredibly arranged, effortlessly, perfectly performed, what more could we ask? "Twelve Days" is a treasured gift to yourself or anyone you love at Christmas.

Vocal Majority : Believe : 1 CD : VM25000

Vocal Majority : Believe

It's not very often that one can say with certainty in the music business that any particular group is the very best of its type in the world. Yet we can say as much with this barbershop chorus as they have 11 gold medals to prove it - more than any other chorus in history. We therefore always have high hopes of their new recordings and expect something close to perfection. Well once again they surpass themselves on this holiday gem. One of the things that always impress is how such a sweet, sometimes so gentle; sound can come from such a large chorus of male only voices. Director (and arranger of many of the songs) Jim Clancy truly has a talent for coaxing the very purest of sound from a chorus. There is the occasional accompanied Christmas ornamentation and some very strong solosby Jay Dennis, Steve DeCrow and Jeff Oxley but it's the harmony that counts, and this recording has some of the best!

Songlist: Caroling, Caroling, Believe, Mary's Boy Child, What Child is This?, My Grown-Up Christmas List, Christmas Time Is Here, Kay Thompson's Jingle Bells, That's What I Want for Christmas, Christmas Lullaby, Betelehemu, Lo, How a Rose E'er Blooming, Birthday of a King
