Ms. Vincent is a well-schooled musician who sings with verve, taste, and understanding. Her voice has a mature, supple, liquid sound and is used to great advantage no matter the style or period. There is not a sameness of sound; instead, one hears a fine flexibility, which is employed in her very own inimitable manner.
Whereas a cappella singing can be positively glorious, it can never be assumed that the basics will be fully and adequately covered. The Xavier University Concert Choir is a well-balanced ensemble that sings with meaning, conviction, sensitivity, and of paramount importance, remains true to the pitch.
Of particular note is the consistently serene and placid accompaniment of the guitarist who gives a fine presence, complements but never intrudes. Deserving special mention is the wonderful partnership between voice and piano on â€œOh Holy Night.â€
The message of â€œO Come Let Us Adore Himâ€ is a universal one of love, faith, hope, peace and joy embodied in the story of the birth of Christ, the eternal heart of Christmas.
