Album Notes
In their debut album "Christmasse Comes But Once A Year", the Montana A Cappella Society presents a distinctive collection of holiday music, unpretentious in its delivery of the pure human voice and resonating with the group’s characteristic sound and precision.

This remarkable vocal ensemble from the Bitterroot Valley of Western Montana has received wide audience acclaim. The Society performs regionally, promoting awareness and appreciation of the art of a cappella singing through live performance, recordings and educational programs in schools.

Under the direction of Artistic Director Don Matlock, these all volunteer, non-professional singers create their own unique blend and signature sound. Typical selections range from Renaissance madrigals to vocal jazz, classic love songs, patriotic, folk tunes and toe-tapping gospel, with interesting new arrangements and challenging music styles.

The chorus demonstrates its versatility by performing in concert, for private bookings and as guest artists at music festivals, community and civic events. This intrepid group of Montanans raised funds and traveled to San Francisco to participate as invited performers at the Great Dickens Christmas Fair, a magical re-creation of Victorian London.

Celebrating the Holiday season with concerts like stage productions, with singers in replica 1800’s period costumes, the Society delights audiences with a diverse repertoire of both secular and sacred music spanning eight centuries, multiple cultures and languages.

Look for our second CD in 2008 - 600 years of love songs!

Gerry Grzyb, "Dr. Christmas" Appleton Post-Crescent/WRST-FM

So full of the season's meaning...I give it my Christmas Spirit award
Once every year or two, I encounter a CD so full of the season's meaning that I give it my Christmas Spirit award. This year it goes to the Montana A Cappella Society, a bunch of pretty darn good singers who like to put on period dress and sing Christmas carols. I've invited them all to Wisconsin.

Carol Swanson/Christmas Reviews

This group flat-out does a terrific job.
These folks are darn good..."Christmasse Comes But Once
a Year" makes you feel warm, fuzzy and fulfilled every time you play the
CD...the a cappella singing is strong, clear and filled with joy. Shine on,
Montana A Cappella Society...I wish you were on my doorstep right now!

Bob Wehe

Unique and refreshing arrangements of old classics, presented by impeccable musicians. Awesome a cappella music that echos off the Cascades and fills Big Sky Country.
