REVIEWER: Dr. Ted Baehr

James Sundquist’s AN ANTHOLOGY OF SACRED CAROLS FOR THE CLASSICAL GUITAR is a timeless masterpiece of instrumental music. It has just been re-released and is must listening, especially for Christmas. The carols include some wonderful classics such as Joy to the World, God Rest You Merry Gentlemen, Silent Night, and some other beautiful renditions of many more sacred carols. This album was aired on National Public Radio as part of a documentary James wrote on the history of Christmas carols. It was also nominated for a Grammy for Best Album Notes.

This is elegant, classical, refined music that soothes, touches and inspires the soul. It far transcends the normal arrangements of sacred carols, and it will capture the heart and mind of anyone who listens to it. MOVIEGUIDE® recommends this album as a “must listen to” this holiday season. This inspirational CD can be previewed on YOUTUBE at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ARXw3eIqS8M. This album is the companion to his Wilbur Award-winning release AN ANTHOLOGY OF SACRED HYMNS FOR CLASSICAL GUITAR. James has been a friend of MOVIEGUIDE(r) for a quarter of a century, and it is wonderful that he is re-releasing this brilliant CD.
