Storybook Advent Interactive Caroling Songbook features 40 Christmas carols performed expertly on the piano by Michael Brech: 20 in the American Tradition and 20 in the British Tradition along with each carols lyrics. Sing along with the music or simply listen to gorgeous music. Discover which of your favorite carols are played differently, depending upon which side of The Pond you live, (hint: there are 4)
In addition to the music and lyrics contained in the Storybook Advent Interactive Caroling Songbook, you'll learn which song was first written over 1700 years, (talk about withstanding the test of time!). Which popular carol was originally intended for Thanksgiving and which was meant for Lent? You'll learn this too. You'll also discover the real meanings behind the symbols of the Twelve Days of Christmas as well as some of the more unusual Christmas Traditions celebrated throughout the world. You'll learn which song was the original 'Little Drummer Boy' song, how some of your favorite carols are played differently in other parts of the world and you'll be introduced to some of the greatest composers and lyricists of all time.
For the Carols featured on the American Classics album, we treat you to a pictorial tour of the Holy Land, Via Dolorosa and other Christian Holy Sites, as well as glimpses of life for Christians living in the land of Christ. See where Pontius Pilate washed his hands, the pools where Jesus performed his miracles, the spot marking where the crown of thorns was placed on his head as well as Jacob's Well and other cultural sites and slices of modern life in the Christian Quarter of the Old City and beyond not generally seen in the standard tour packages.
For the British Classics, we've included a pictorial tour of Southern England, its countryside, traditions, people and selected estates. Each carol features its full lyrics, country of origin and other tidbits of information. When available we've given you the original language version of the carol as well.
