Editorial Reviews

Twenty-two carols in all. 'We Three Kings', 'Joy to The World', 'Silent Night', 'O Come Emanuel', 'Angels We Have Heard on High', to name a few. Fourteen musicians perform on a variety of instruments, among them flute, mandolin, piano, guitar, violin, cello, bass, banjo, concertina, accordion, tin whistle, and even vielle, hurdy-gurdy, harmonium and Irish pipes. All tracks are performed in small instrumental ensembles, creating a variety of traditional sounds in the arrangements. This has become a fireside, tree-trimming, giftopening classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Traditional Folk Instrumental Music for Christmas November 29, 2007
By Julie
Format:Audio CD
This collection by Otis Read and fellow musicians is by far some of the best traditional instrumental Christmas music I've ever heard. I bought it just by chance back in 1990 for my parents and it became a family tradition. Now it's a tradition in my own family. Unlike other Christmas tunes with singing that "gets old" after the second play, I can listen to this CD over and over again and it is not repetitious. There's 22 carols altogether and all instrumental with no singing: We Three Kings, Joy to The World, Silent Night, O Come Emanuel, Angels We Have Heard on High, to name a few. A total of 14 musicians perform on a variety of instruments, among them flute, mandolin, piano, guitar, violin, cello, bass, banjo, concertina, accordion, tin whistle, vielle, hurdy-gurdy, harmonium and Irish pipes. All songs are performed in small instrumental ensembles. It's rich in traditional folk sounds. As Otis himself says on his website, "This has become a fireside, tree-trimming, gift-opening classic."

Otis sells his CD collection on his web site if you google "Otis Read". I don't think Amazon will allow me to include a direct URL/link here. He sells this and other CDs for approximately $14 brand new plus a $2 shipping charge. I've seen some people on here selling for almost $70 which is really unfortunate if you aren't aware that you can buy direct from the musician (via PayPal) for under $20.

5.0 out of 5 stars sounds of home December 14, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is one of my most favorite Christmas albums. It both sounds and feels like New England. Listen to this music when gazing out into the snow--it makes you feel at home!

5.0 out of 5 stars You Need This Record for Christmas January 10, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The best Christmas music by far. I've been looking for a CD of this for years. Have it on cassette, but it has worn down over time.
