Format: Audio CD
Twenty one favorite Christmas Carols and songs performed by the world renown Crouch End Festival Chorus (conductor - David Temple) and The city of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra (conductor Paul Bateman) for an unforgettable Holiday Season for the entire family.
Two of the most respected musical institutions bring together arrangements and orchestrations by Paul Bateman and Jeremy Marchant ~ harmonized by Charles Wood, David Wilcocks and Simon Fricker with brilliant editing ~ featuring Dolby Surround Sound and HDCD mastering for the connoisseurs listening pleasure.
Entire album is a stand out with "HAVE YOURSELF A MERRY LITTLE CHRISTMAS", a Martin & Blaine tune that Judy Garland sang in "Meet Me in St. Louis", has become an every year classic ~ "GAUDETE", a traditional carol blends eternal happiness, keeping with the season ~ "DING DONG MERRILY ON HIGH", listen as the chorus receive a wonderful workout and they love it ~ "MARY'S BOY CHILD", the big Harry Belafonte hit that always reminds us why we celebrate Christmas ~ "HAPPY XMAS (WAR IS OVER)", the Lennon/Ono tune will tell you like it is ~ but my favorite and highlight is track eleven "WALKING IN THE AIR (from The Snowman), composed for an animated short film, of a boy and his Snowman friend who suddenly comes to life, they travel through the air like magic to the North Pole, meeting Santa and all his friends as they make Christmas all over the world possible, beautiful cue and very haunting mesmerizing theme.
Hats off to James Fitzpatrick (producer), Reynold da silva (album concept), Paul Bateman and Rickie Clark (assoc. producers) and Silva America for making every Christmas special with this incredible album...gotta love it!

Along with ERICH KUNZEL and his great christmas recording, CHRISTMASTIME IS HERE, this cd, CHRISTMAS CHORAL CLASSICS, is just what the name implies, it is a classic recording of christmas music and proves that, just like the ERICH KUNZEL cd mentioned above, they can still make christmas music like they did in yesteryear, that is, back in the 1950's and 1960's.

The usually very traditonal, old-time feeling is heard in songs such as the opening HARK! THE HERALD ANGELS SING, and also in IT'S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR, WINTER WONDERLAND, HAVE YOURSLEF A MERRY LITTLE CHRISTMAS, WHITE CHRISTMAS, JOY TO THE WORLD, etc... all these songs and most others have that classic chorus sound (of the wonderful CROUCH END FESTIVAL CHORUS) that many of us grew up with (such as the LIVING VOICES, MITCH MILLER AND THE GANG, FRED WARING AND THE PENNSYLVANIANS, RAY CONNIFF SINGERS, NORMAN LUBOFF CHOIR, etc...) and along with that great chorus, there is usually a wonderful and powerful orchestra (the great THE CITY OF PRAGUE PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA) backing to the songs (including all the songs mentioned thus far).

DING DONG MERRILY ON HIGH has no musical backing though, but that's okay as this is a wonder vocal version by the chorus and it is a most beautiful version.

A new song for me, GAUDETE, is also wonderful and though it only has a bit of percussion backing the chorus, it still works and the song has become a new great christmas song for me.

Even HAPPY CHRISTMAS (WAR IS OVER) is a decent version (I usually don't like this song on my christmas cd's as I just can't seem to fit it into my classic christmas liking, but the version here is easily acceptable, probably because that's just how great this chorus and orchestra are).

This has one of my favorite carols on it, and it's from the Snowman. I bought it for that reason specifically. But once I started listening to this CD, I realized I like all of the songs on it. It is the perfect CD for the upcoming holidays. I will enjoy it immensely. I also appreciate the quick delivery and instantly being able to access this on my computer.

Album is the best but when you add it (prime album) to your Amazon music collection it plays different songs. Very weird. Contacted Amazon, waiting to see if they can put it right.

I bought this album via instant MP3 download after hearing "Walking on Air" on Pandora. I fell in love with it and decided to buy the whole album. There is a great variety of old classics and new favorites that I've never heard before and the songs are all truly beautiful. Very happy with this and looking forward to listening again next Christmas season!

A very pleasing and surprisingly peaceful anthology of Christmas Choral music. Of particular not is the calypso-style song, "Mary's Boy Child". Maybe the best recording of this song since Harry Belfonte made it famous several decades ago.

A wonderful album featuring many beloved Christmas carols of long ago and some not so long ago. Performed by the very talented 'Crouch End Festival Chorus'-one of Britain's major symphonic choirs with both national and international recognition. I had never heard of them before until I stumbled upon this Christmas album that more people need to know about. Majestic, beautiful, and fun to listen to or sing along with, this music of Christmas past is one I will be enjoying for Christmas present and future!
