Notes & Reviews:

All of these carols are heard in delightful arrangements by Alic Parker and Robert Shaw. The arrangements date from the early 1950s and the popular concerts and recordings of the Robert Shaw Chorale. The Choral's sound in these recent recordings is strikingly professional: perfect intonation, lovely tone qualities, and beautiful expression.
