The Respect Sextet is pleased to share with the world its Christmas album, Respect In Yule! The album (Mode/Avant 2012) ranges from ecstatic to introspective, from the popular to the obscure, from the sacred to the secular. Featuring guest spots from new-music stalwarts Ensemble Signal and the JACK Quartet and guitarist Marco Cappelli, Respect In Yule shall be unto you an instant holiday classic, belonging in the collection of any self-respecting listener, bringing with it tidings of great joy.
Ting tong, everybody!
