Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

In the 50's, former big band trombonist-turned-arrange Ray Coniff experimented with replacing solo instrumental parts with often wordless vocal choruses and concocted the wildly successful easy listening ethos that came to symbolize pre-rock pop. This 1965 collection of Christmas favorites is a testament to the staying power of Coniff's milieu, even at the height of Beatlemania (which bizarrely inspired the arranger to set "Joy to the World" to a Liverpool beat). Backed by Coniff's typically bubbly arrangements, the impossibly joyful, pristine voices here seem to be caroling at some timeless, unlikely crossroads of hipster kitsch and nostalgic Americana. "God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman" even evokes the Hollywood Western ethos of former Conniff colleague Frankie Laine so convincingly that one almost expects to hear Santa cracking a whip over Rudolph's head on the fade-out. --Jerry McCulley

Customer Reviews

Another CD that is very difficult to find but was worth the search.
Happyduck
This album and Ray Conniff's "We Wish You A Merry Christmas" are two of my favorite Christmas albums.
Hi Tech Guy
This Christmas album will be a good addition to my Christmas collection of CDs.

Ray Conniff's "Here We Come A-Caroling" is a 1965 holiday offering from the is in the mold of the rest of their Christmas albums, including his most successful, the 1962 "We Wish You a Merry Christmas." That means familiar songs done in peppy choral arrangement. It might be true that the Ray Conniff singers were muzak before muzak was muzak, but I have to plead guilty to this sound being the one I most associate with Christmas. This album even had a minor hit when "The Real Meaning Of Christmas" made it to #19 on the Billboard Pop chart that year. Nobody is more intent on spreading the Christmas cheer than the Ray Conniff Singers, although this time they do it with mostly traditional religious carols like "Silent Night," "Away in the Manger," "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear," and "O Little Town of Bethlehem," the last of which particularly shows the Conniff approach to such songs. The only complaint is that compared to their other albums this one has a shorter playing time, but that is a minor complaint if you like this particularly resisliant type of holiday musical cheer.

I bought the other two christmas cds of Ray Connif a few years ago and it never failed to bring back fun and nostalgic memories of my childhood during the Christmas season. I was surfing the internet to look for new Christmas Cds when I accidentally came across this one. I was surprised to know that there is still another christmas album that was released earlier in the 50's by ray connif. After listening to the music samplers at amazon, I immediately ordered a copy of it, for i couldn't wait to have one in order to complete my Ray Connif Christmas Album Collection. Now that my collection is complete,i couldn't ask for more. Ray and his choir were great and the sound of the CD is excellent.

I have a large collection of Christmas Music and many are on CDs. I have been converting them to digital for easy listening during the Holiday Season. This Lable is a classic for any collector and will be a wonderful addition to your library. Any person who has any of the Ray Conniff records or tapes in the past will want to have this for their Christmas Collection.

Once upon a time, when chorale singers were popular, Percy Faith, Mitch Miller and Ray Conniff were churning out mainstream and holiday albums that get radio play every year. This CD has 12 songs that will put you in the holiday spirit. My favorites are Here We Come a Caroling, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, Joy To The World, What Child is This?, O Tannenbaum and O Little Town of Bethlehem. Nice tunes tastefully done for any holiday party or activity. You can get this CD on amazon.com - that's where I got it.

These discs and/or albums are becoming harder to find. Fantastic vocal harmony from the Ray Coniff singers as usual. I bought this as acompliment to the 'We Wish You A Merry Christmas' CD Album. This cd is more pop oriented with holiday jingle tunes....whereas the 'We Wish You A Merry Christmas' cd is more traditional; especially with the meledy-type sing of one song leading into another (think Ray Coniff TV special). In my opinion, that cd outperforms as far as vocal arrangements....but this 'Here We Come A-Caroling ' cd is still the tops & fun to listen to...whether driving in your car while Christmas shopping or as background music at a party.

Over the years, Ray Conniff has acquired an entirely undeserved reputation for throttling the living daylights out of popular music on the many lps he recorded with his orchestra and singers. While Conniff's arrangements could, at times, sacrifice intent for rhythm, they were never trivial or boorish. Conniff recorded three Christmas themed albums for Columbia between 1959 and 1965, the best of which is, I think, this splendid 1965 recording. Conniff and his singers do a creditable job of maintaining the feel of the classic carols on this record, which include the spiritual Go tell it to the mountain and the lovely Away in a manger. Conniff's unusual arrangements for God rest ye merry gentlemen and Joy to the world are firmly rooted in 60s pop sensibilities, yet sound fresh and appealing over forty years later.I get the sense that Ray Conniff had a special place in his heart for Christmas music; you can hear that affinity on all of his Christmas lps and, especially on this very wonderful album.

This was such a wonderful album- from the very first song, it puts you right in the Christmas mood! Very cheery and festive, it's perfect for cold days and twinkly Christmas tree lights. All the songs are beautifully harmonized, and great to sing-along to. The album contains some songs you don't really hear at Christmas anymore- Here We Come A-Caroling, Go Tell it on the Mountain, O Tannenbaum- was thrilled to hear their version of it. Excellent album- I could kick myself for not getting this before- very highly recommended!

Such great vocals, music, arrangements and the way Christmas music should be to me, very classy and traditional. You won't get this sound today in music, simply a holiday favorite for me to mix with many other xmas music I have. You can't go wrong as you have the option to listen to piece of the songs before buying the CD or buying individual songs.
