I wasn't familiar with the music itself. The musicianship was first-rate but most of the music not really to my taste.
My wife and I really enjoyed this CD!
this was obviously played by talented musicians but, to my untrained ear it was beyond my ability to appreciate. I have listened to it and found some of the tracks of Manhattan interesting but I would never purchase it.
I love the songs on this, and it is especially good because my concert band is playing Suite for Mass. It's wonderful to hear it performed by such incredible musicians.
Wonderful Band music! Kudos to composers, Canadian Brass and Eastman Wind Ensemble! I've listened to it over and over already.
I love this album. It sounds great, as Canadian Brass always does!
Love the Canadian Brass. They offer excellence in every way. Love the sound of the group and their stage presence. Thanks for sharing your gifts.
Beautiful music, well-performed, as usual for Canadian Brass and Eastman. However, I would like to hear more of Brass and less of Wind Ensemble.
