24 The Longines Symphonette - The Sweet Voices of Christmas




Other than the cool period cover art, I didn't have much initial interest in this album, as I was expecting a schmaltzy wash of strings and kids voices. While a fair percentage of it is that, the rest is fairly-economically-arranged versions of these Christmas warhorses as sung by a very pro children's choir with a couple of nice instrumentals thrown in that rival those of more well-known traditional Christmas instrumental performers (Frosty is particularly nice, with an assortment of instruments taking turns taking the lead).
