Ray Conniff Singers: Here We Come A-Caroling

Here We Come A-Caroling
Silent Night
God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
Away in a Manger
Joy to the World
Adoramus Te
The Real Meaning of Christmas
Go Tell It on the Mountain
What Child Is This?
O Tannenbaum
It Came Upon a Midnight Clear
O Little Town of Bethlehem

Previously released as a Columbia LP that was probably pulled out and played to distraction every Christmas thereafter, this reissue captures the joyous innocence and cheer of Christmas in the 50's and 60's like the tiny flakes in a snow globe. Each of these 12, all lightly accompanied songs has "Arr: R. Conniff" under them, and it's physically impossible to feel sad while listening to a Conniff arrangement. The title tune, "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen," "Joy To The World," "Go Tell It On The Mountain," "O Tannenbaum" and "O Little Town Of Bethlehem" are given upbeat, jazzy-pop tempos, while "Silent Night," "Away In A Manger," "Adoremus Te," "The Real Meaning of Christmas," "What Child Is This" and "It Came Upon A Midnight Clear" are slower ballads. The Singers' sound is bright, sweet and sincere-exactly how we like it!
