 Percy Faith


Somehow Christmas isn’t the same without Festive Music, whether traditional carols or the appealing popular melodies dreamed up by composers who know how to tear at our nostalgic heartstrings. Both categories can be found in abundance in this collection, which offers tasteful orchestral settings of some of the best known carols from various countries alongside the catchy novelties that make Christmas such a happy time of the year. In the hands of the top arrangers and orchestras assembled on this album, there is every chance that the discerning listener will discover some new sounds that add a welcome vibrancy to old, familiar friends. The six conductors performing the music for our enjoyment were among the most famous in the world towards the end of the 1950s, when these stereo recordings were made. Billy Vaughn, Percy Faith, George Melachrino, Mantovani, Angela Morley and Arthur Fiedler with his famous Boston ’Pops’ combine to make this one of the finest orchestral Christmas collections ever.
