Album Notes

Liner Note Authors: Valli Little; Annabel Langbein.

Even though it sounds like hyperbole, The Christmas Collection: All the Music You'll Need This Christmas is a well-rounded offering of classical, traditional, and popular music that should be suitable for most holiday needs. This triple-CD package from the Australian Broadcasting Corporation offers three programs per disc, the first covering classical masterpieces by Johann Sebastian Bach, George Frideric Handel, Arcangelo Corelli, Franz Liszt, Pyotr Il'yich Tchaikovsky, Benjamin Britten, John Rutter, and others; the second, a sampling of beloved Christmas carols, including Once in Royal David's City, Good King Wenceslas, Silent Night, O Come, All Ye Faithful, and Joy to the World; and the third, which presents jazz recordings by Duke Ellington, Bing Crosby, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Billie Holiday, and many other artists. Considering that the mood of a Christmas gathering might depend on having appropriate background music on hand, this convenient package should do the trick. ~ Blair Sanderson
