"Star of the Magi features arrangements of sixteen and seventeenth-century carols by Susie Napper, who is in full flood of artistic creativity and imagination here. Suzie LeBlanc and Danier Taylor sing beautifully as always, but this is far from a happy sing-along. For our purposes it is fascinating to observe how the gambas are used on this CD. (...) By far, the most fantastic setting is the Spanish carol "Riu riu chiu", set for two bass viols in full flamenco guitar mode. In a wonderful performance, you can almost hear clicking castanets and tapping spike heels. Ole!"

Elizabeth MacDonald - Viola da Gamba Society of America - 1 March 2009


"... This is one Christmas release that is a keeper!"

Parsons - American Record Guide - 1 November 2006


           Artistic Quality 10      Sound Quality 10
"...The program is awell chosen and intelligently organized selection of early carols and dances directly associated with the celebration of Christmas, made even more appealing by skillful, enticig arrangements that include viols, recorder, lute, drum, bells and percussion. The sound is remarkable for its realism. Be prepared to be convinced that these performers are right in the room with you!"
