Christmas Music Review: Rockapella: Comfort and Joy

This C.D. represents the Rockapella style very well with mouth percussion, low bass, nice melodies backed by intricate harmonies.  There is much to enjoy here.  Particularly, "Rockin' around the Christmas Tree" and "I'll be Home for Christmas" feature bass solos.  "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" also ends with bass lead.  However the cream of this set is a song "Peace on Earth" in which the melody continues, "should begin with me."  Some other notable songs include "Merry Christmas Darling", "Home for the Holidays" and "This Christmas day."  "Little  Mary Snowflake" starts the C.D. and provides an uptempo song.  This is plenty to enjoy here.  There is something weird with kids adding dialogue, which doesn't work for me.
