Notes & Reviews:

Caroling is a tradition that goes back hundreds of years as a joyful part of the winter holiday season. Since the Eisenhower administration, the U.S. Air Force Singing Sergeants have been caroling at the White House each December for guests from around the country and throughout the world. In the spirit of that tradition, this album contains some of the band's favorites, including songs that tell the Christmas story, celebrate the Hanukah tradition, and inspire hope, peace and joy. Featured tracks are "S'vivon," "Adam Lay Ybounden," and the classics we all love including "Away in a Manger," "Ave Maria," and "Jingle Bells." All of the songs are performed in the a cappella tradition. Caroling, directed by Captain Chad A. Steffey, is dedicated to all of the men and women of the United States Air Force who are away from home during the holiday season.
