Chip Davis Presents: Renaissance Holiday
Chip Davis and London Symphony Orchestra
American Gramaphone, 1998
1998 release from Chip Davis (Mannheim Steamroller) who collaborates with members of MS and other artists. Renaissance Holiday is a cool variation on the traditional "Fresh Aire" sound. Mannheim Steamroller tackles olde Renaissance music in their familiar style, and while that occasionally can sound a little strange -- this was not music made to be played by synthesizers -- it is very, very intriguing and a very refreshing spin on their ...

Andy Williams' Christmas Present
Columbia Records/Sony, 1990
Of all the Andy Williams Christmas albums available, Christmas Present is by far his most religious collection. The release consists of thirteen tracks and all of them, with the possible exception of the title track, could be considered hymns. Like other male crooners from the 1960s, Williams was portrayed as a bit of a swinger, but here when he sings the "Ave Maria" he sounds as pious and pure as an altar boy. In fact, the sensitive take is ...

Bach, as Zack s previous two releases did, and also turn-of-the- 20th-century titan Max Reger, who clearly based his solo violin output on that of ...
