  1. I don’t think I liked this version more than the version we sing. Even though i find this version a little haunting, the harmonies and the time in which each section comes in, are done very clean and sharp. This choir knows how to control their volume and knows how to annunciate. But if I was in the audience at the time, i would feel a little haunted by the sound.

    • Thiswas really good. There harmonies were amazing. Everything was distict and all of the parts were well heard. It was overall beautiful.
      However they were emotionless in expression.

  2. I thought this version of Infant Holy was very beautiful. It had an etheral vibe to it that was great. The different parts were all noticable but blended together nicely. The only thing about this performance I didn’t like was that for some reason I didn’t feel anything from it. Yes it was perfect in pitch and melody, but I felt as though it lacked emotion that should make you feel warm and fuzzy on the inside. The arrangement is all there but the feeling and emotion was lacking for me personally.

  3. Apart from the song, i liked every bit of it. The elements were used perfectly, but there was about one or two people who were over shooting it which destroyed the tone. At the end, they were in unison which i liked. I liked this version of Infant Holy.

  4. Beautiful! The harmonies were for the most part in perfect unison. However there were many different tone types that distracted from the blending at times but it wasn’t that noticeable. Also the room in which they sang looked amazing and had great natural reverb. Overall we must remember Christ the babe is lord of all. :3
