If You Can Only Have One Christmas Recording…

Read "If You Can Only Have One Christmas Recording…" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

This Holiday article is early and necessary. I am writing this rare stand-alone review of a Seasonal offering because I have a couple of bah-humbug friends who disrespect Christmas Music.

Ten Men

Read "Ten Men" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

My unscientific estimate contends that there are three female vocalists for every male vocalist. This does not mean that there are no male vocalists out there as evidenced by these ten examples. They just take a little longer to accumulate.

Every generation since the beginning of recorded music discovers Gregorian Chant. The most recent (re)discovery was in the mid-1990s with the phenomenally successful Chant CDs from The Benedictine Monks of Santo Domingo de Silos released on Angel Records. The actual performances were recorded some 20 years earlier and released to less than optimistic reviews and sales ...
