Notes & Reviews:

During the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season we often lose track of the meaning of Christmas. Whether it is the excitement of the first snow fall, the warmth from glowing candle lights or the joyous laughter from jolly old Saint Nick, Christmas is a magical season that brings people of all ages and backgrounds together. The sights and sounds of the Christmas season are the inspiration for In the Park: Christmas, the second installment of the new compilation series from EMI Classics, In the Park. From EMI's unparalleled classical and jazz catalogs, the new release provides the perfect backdrop for a nostalgic Christmas season in the park. In the Park: Christmas features renowned classical and jazz artists including The Choir of King's College Cambridge, The American Boychoir, The King's Singers, Kathleen Battle, Chet Baker and Stan Kenton. This new compilations adds a special and evocative twist by juxtaposing jazz and classical tracks into a seasonal mix. Grab a hot cup of egg nog and put on your winter hat as you enjoy the sound of snow crunching under your boots and the music of the Christmas season.
