Christmas chorus albums offer some of the best christmas music you will ever hear. This album by the LIVING VOICES titled THE LITTLE DRUMMER BOY from 1965, is one of the best. It is arranged and conducted by Anita Kerr and contains the four singers of the ANITA KERR SINGERS plus four other singers to bring a total of eight fabulous singers to this christmas chorus classic.

It's very much in the cheerful style of FRED WARING AND THE PENNSYLVANIANS, MITCH MILLER AND THE GANG, THE NORMAN LUBOFF CHOIR, and especially the RAY CONNIFF SINGERS. You will find, most likely, huge comparisons with RAY CONNIFF'S 1959 album - CHRISTMAS WITH CONNIFF. I'm currently leaning towards this LIVING VOICES album as being the better one between it and the CHRISTMAS WITH CONNIFF album but it's really a toss up as they're both fabulous.

On this LIVING VOICES album - THE LITTLE DRUMMER BOY, songs like HOLLY JOLLY CHRISTMAS and even THE LITTLE DRUMMER BOY are the best versions of the songs ever recorded as far as I'm concerned. Both SILVER BELLS and IT'S BEGINNING TO LOOK ALOT LIKE CHRISTMAS are in medley's but they are beautiful versions of each song.

Of special note, though, is a rare song called BE A SANTA that could be the best song on the album. Very cheerful and a really great upbeat sound. It stands out on this album like MUST BE SANTA does on MITCH MILLER AND THE GANG'S christmas album, HOLIDAY SING ALONG WITH MITCH.

And best of all, every other song is great and no skipping a song to get to the next one (which I always find important).

I too grew up with this Christmas album- we had it on reel to reel, and one of the best gifts I ever got from my Dad was when he somehow recorded it to CD. The copy was not the best, however, and my Mom couldn't remember who the artist was. My kids also grew up with this music because it is my favorite. Although I love Christmas music in general I am not crazy about contemporary arrangements, I prefer the classics and nothing has ever rivaled these songs for me. So when my daughter asked me last night if I could burn her a copy of my CD so she and her fiance, and my eventual grandchildren would have it I thought maybe if I researched it I could find out who did it and actually track down an original. I cannot express how absolutely excited and delighted I was to find it AND discover that there were some copies available. As soon as my album arrives in the mail I will be setting about how to get more copies made. I really feel a kinship to those of you who reviewed this wonderful album, which is the soundtrack of all of my best Christmas memories.

I finally found my childhood album!!! LIVING VOICES. At first I was thinking wrongly it was by Harry Simeone, but then I heard this on youtube. Go to google and type in "youtube pine cones and holly berries" and the song will come up and you can hear this beautiful Christmas song from this album and a few others as well. WOW! I knew it instantly. I wish we had it on CD. I would buy and give as gifts! BEST CHRISTMAS ALBUM EVER!!! No other choral is better and I've heard a lot and sing in both church and community choirs and choral groups. Love this. It's precious. Praise the Lord.

I love this album! I grew up listening to it and bought it for myself many years ago so my kids grew up with it as well. I got rid of all my vinyls years ago never thinking I would not be able to replace this special one. I have searched every year for this on CD and was never able to find it until this year when I purchased the vinyl and as a bonus got a CD copy. Thrilled to have it once again in my Christmas music collection and though I haven't been able to play the vinyl yet, as I don't have a turntable, I believe it will be just as promised because the CD sounds great!

One of the most beautiful Christmas albums ever. I only wish that it would come out on a CD and I could have it in my car. It's not Christmas to my grown children until I play their childhood favorite. Brings back soooo many good memories.
