REVIEW (excerpt)
"Nathan Daughtrey deserves high marks for his arrangement of Deck the Halls for marimba quartet, which manages to present the old, familiar tune in a refreshing, imaginative, march-like setting. It provides each of the four marimbists an equally important voice in the discourse, as portions of the melody are freely tossed around between them in the cleverly written, fast-paced presentation."
