AllMusic Review by

Christmas Brass: Christmas Medley features the Fine Arts Brass Ensemble performing a total of 25 compositions over the course of a single disc. The ensemble moves quickly, never spending too much time on a given composition. A few of these songs will sound familiar to you -- "O Holy Night," "Have Yourself a Merry Christmas," "We Three Kings" -- but, for the most part, this isn't your run-of-the-mill collection. It has a strong classical leaning, featuring several Bach compositions. Therefore, it should most appeal to those with a taste for classical music.
