What a treasure of holiday music, "Our Man In Hollywood", left behind for all of his old and new fans to enjoy. Remember most of these were recorded in the mid '60s, I can still see the vinyl album cover, with Hank sitting at the piano as his loving family stand around him singing Christmas Carols.
Typical Mancini flourishes with his distinctive use of instruments like the French horn and bass flute, crisp, bracing, yet unfailingly melodic contribution of a large string sections abound throughout the several medleys on this festive CD.
Bonus tracks appear on this re-issue - "BABY, IT'S COLD OUTSIDE"..."HAVE YOURSELF A MERRY LITTLE CHRISTMAS", introduced by Judy Garland from the film "Meet Me In St. Louis"..."WHAT ARE YOU DOING NEW YEAR'S EVE?..."AULD LANG SYNE"...and "SNOWFALL", this delicately wrought tune has a tranquilizing almost mesmerizing effect.
Henry Mancini is no longer with us, but this wonderful collection of holiday music, will be a constant reminder that he was here and made the difference...as you have a "Mancini Moment", listening to "Henry Mancini Greatest Christmas Songs"!
Total Time: 53:40 on 15 Tracks...RCA Records 07863 67970...(2000)

Definitely one of the 2 or 3 best Christmas albums ever. Mancini's arrangements are flawless, and the great 60's stereo sound is brilliantly preserved on this remastered version. Don't wait....buy this CD now in time for the holidays. I cannot listen to "Carol for Another Christmas" without crying.....you will too.

Tasteful, traditional orchestral Christmas music. More importantly, "Carol for Another Christmas" may be the most beautiful Christmas composition of the 20th Century.

Beautiful orchestral Christmas music and more. A CD the whole family would be sure to enjoy. Listening to it brings back memories of Christmas Eve when we would open presents and watch/listen to the WPIX Yule Log. A few of the songs here were featured in the program, most notably, "Carol for Another Christmas". Trust me, buy it for that song alone.

This is a flawless remaster of an older album, with crisp, clear and detailed sound. One after another, classic Christmas and seasonal selections are presented with Mancini's unique musical arrangements and a pitch perfect group of singers.

I haven't yet run across a purely instrumental album of Mancini Christmas music, but I'd love to find one. I'm literally a life-long fan of his fascinating jazz arrangements, having grown up listening to my parents' albums of Peter Gunn, Mr. Lucky and others.

One of the instrumental numbers that IS included on this album is a delightful performance of "Snowfall", which was previously known to me only from a Skitch Henderson performance included on a 60s era "end cap album" called Winter Serenades. For me that's the highlight of this CD. I could write a very entertaining story about my decades long quest to find and/or reproduce "Winter Serenades". LOL

Highly recommended.
