Merry Christmas

Perhaps no other holiday has been celebrated so beautifully and differently throughout the world as Christmas. The music celebrating this time of year is among the most beautiful and varied ever written. Most of the carols and selections included on this recording will be familiar, yet each captures the spirit of Christmas in its own unique way.
