In the 1960s as popular music turned to rock & roll, Mitch Miller recorded traditional songs with his chorus and released several albums that became popular as the backlash against rock grew with the mature segment of the population.
This Christmas album continues Mitch’s string of successful albums.
Like his other albums, Mitch arranges popular songs for choral renditions in a measured tempo, like a march.
While march tempos worked well for folk songs, it does not present Christmas carols well. The carols in this album tend to drag on. Unless one likes carols sung like marches, I’d skip this album.
Much better renditions of Christmas carols are presented in an album from the same period, Ray Conniff’s “We Wish You A Merry Christmas,” also available on Amazon.
