Great for holidays
This wonderful compilation of holiday music is perfect for holiday entertaining. It could easily be played as light background music for parties, events or just to enjoy as you sit around enjoying the lights of your Christmas tree. It features some well-known pieces from compositions such as the Nutcracker Suite and also introduces you to lesser known holiday classics. There are even some religious works on there as well. A great music CD for the Christmas season.
