22 The Five Choirs of Good Samaritan Episcopal Church - Music For Christmas
OK, technically I shouldn't be posting this yet. If you know any Episcopalians (and I do know some Episcopalians!) you know that they take their liturgical calender seriously, and it's not Christmas season until Christmas day (it's currently Advent, for those wondering). That means you don't sing Christmas songs until Christmas day, either.
This double record set from this Philadelphia church came to me missing disc two (sides two and three) so today we only get sides one and four. The set is packaged in a hefty gatefold sleeve, the inside two pages of which are completely blank. Maybe it's supposed to remind the listener of snow.
The included choirs are The Adult Mixed Choir and Friends, The Men and Boy Choir, The Girl Choir, The Children's Choir, and The Youth Choir. William Evans conducts and Richard Alexander accompanies on the organ (according to the liner notes, which differ from the front cover).
