 Notes & Reviews
 
Very modern Christmas music mixed with traditional. Great a cappella voices. But some of the modern treatment of traditional Christmas music is overdone.
- Manfred Theierl, 10/29/1997, USA

Contemporary Christian group Take 6 are virtuoso singers with a flawless grasp of harmonic theory. This vocabulary enables them to create arrangements that are resplendent with original ideas, though built on an unassailable foundation. 'Silent Night' is a haunting mysterious dance with the familiar melody line, a departure point for the jazz chord voicing's that are essential imagery of Take 6. The group's own 'Oh!, He Is Christmas' is a sophisticated soul didactic. 'Away in a Manger' is rooted in a repeating bass part - the breath of the tune - while the lead is freed up to explore every vocal contour. 'Amen' is a smooth gospel-go-round, joyous and bright. If you want uniquely brilliant interpretations of your Christmas favorites, this is the CD for you. [Note: This product is an authorized, licensed CD-R and is manufactured on demand]
