Description

'Traditional Christmas' is a double CD collection packed to the brim with timeless warmth and cheer, featuring Bing Crosby, Doris Day, Frank Sinatra, the Royal Choral Society, the King's College Chapel Choir and many others.

Welcome to a unique selection of recordings that capture the musical magic of Yuletides past - the days of Dickie Valentine's Christmas Alphabet and David Whitfield's Santo Natale, of Christmas Eve by the fireside and Kings College Choir on the Home Service. Gathered here are the songs we sang and the singers who made Christmas so special back in the 40s and 50s - soaring tenors of the calibre of Richard Tauber and John McCormack, the girl-next-door charm and angelic soprano of Deanna Durbin, the massed voices of the Huddersfield Choral Society. They appear alongside more contemporary Christmas songs, such as Bing Crosby's "White Christmas", Harry Belafonte's "Mary's Boy" and Alma Cogan's "Must Be Santa". All the tracks have been lovingly restored and digitally re-mastered to sound more vibrant than ever before.
