Notes & Reviews:

The magnificent voices of the Huddersfield Choral Society celebrate the Christmas Season with heart-warming arrangements of our favorite carols. Undoubtedly the hardiest annual of the entire musical repertoire, the carol, in one form or another, has held its own against the twin ravages of time and taste, out-witting the fickleness of fashion and fad down the ages through its remarkable mutability.
