It begins with three musical brothers---Mark of Oslo, Norway, Paul of Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin, and Kurt of Geneva, Illinois, along with Paul's wife, Ruth--forming the Cambridge Road Ensemble. Paul and Ruth's sons, David and Luke, also contribute their musical talents in this collection. Though the three brothers live far apart, it doesn't stop their family tradition of sharing music during the Christmas season. These life long musicians arranged and recorded Christmas music from throughout the world for the release of their first CD through Oak Valley Studios. The CD - A World of Christmas Carols - has received critical acclaim and earned many repeat sales as a relaxing, musical gift.
Oak Valley Studios was formed in 2002 by Kurt, Paul and Ruth Heinecke for the purpose of recording, manufacturing and distributing CDs of original arrangements and original music.
