Carols From the Old & New Worlds features Paul Hillier performing a large variety of holiday favorites. Featured performances include "While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks," "Shepherd's Star," "Christmas Carol," and "Joy to the World," in addition to 20 others. Most of these performances are brief and many are traditional songs from Europe, so they may be unfamiliar to many listeners. ~ Jason Birchmeier
