A slice of my childhood
There were just a few Christmas music staples in our home,and this was my dad's absolute favorite! When I was married and moved away, he taped it (remember cassette tapes?) so that I would be able to listen to it at Christmastime. Several of Dad's other favorites are no longer available, but are still on cassettes, waiting for me to digitally record them. This is one of them - but I am thrilled to be able to buy the digital files instead! Dad's favorite was "O Come, O Come Emmanuel" but mine is "God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen." Buy this and enjoy! It will bring the Christmas spirit into your home!
Just beautiful treatments of traditional Christmas music. Absolutely wonderful.
The Joy of Christmas
One of the all time great Christmas albums. I have had it on the original LP, on tape and on CD. But, for goodness sake, get the title right. It has always been, "The Glorious Sound of Christmas," not "The Joy of Christmas." Read the artwork!!!
