This celebrated trio lend their airy harmonies to such holiday fare as We Wish You a Merry Christmas; The Cherry Tree Carol; Light One Candle; O Come, O Come Emmanuel , and The Magi , as well as old chestnuts like Blowin' in the Wind .
One of the most successful folk groups of the 1960s ("Puff the Magic Dragon," "Where Have All the Flowers Gone"), Peter, Paul & Mary reunited in 1978 and have pretty much continued playing together for people of all ages. This celebration is helped along by the New York Choral Society and includes many familiar Christmas songs. While none of them possess an extraordinary singing voice or dexterous musicianship, their talents combined make for a sound greater than the sum of its parts. Bob Dylan's "Blowin' in the Wind" is their one concession to their success as topical performers. The rest is festive and often moving. --Rob O'Connor
