Christmas Music Review: Christmas: The Singers Unlimited Leader: Gene Puerling

This is quartet music, mostly acapella.  The mood of some of the songs is too low, and often the tempo changes suddenly to change the mood.  These singers, Gene Puerling, Don Shelton, Len Dresslar and Bonnie Herman, have excellent pitch, and the intricate cords they make are exciting.  However too the album in general has some boring parts.  This is mostly when the bass sings a solo, which is washed away by the low notes.  However the progression of cords in "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear" and "Silent Night" make these songs very interesting.  "Caroling, Caroling" is also very well done and up beat.  The song "Nigh Bethlehem" is in a minor key, and has a very interesting feel that is very compelling.
