I Was a Bit Waring of this Album

I'm a fan of Pennsylvanian bandleader Fred Waring and his peppy polkas and cheerful Christmas classics. This, however, is probably not something that will make its way onto my turntable again. It's an Easter pageant (or as we used to call them, a cantata) full of lugubrious music, recitations, and a soaring choir. It's well done if you like that sort of thing.
