So, since I'll be away from Merry and Bright for a few days, I'm sharing out a 4-record set of tremendous Christmas music. "Joyous Music for Christmas Time" is a Reader's Digest collection from 1963 that offers up a variety of music across the four records. The records take us through:
Carols for Chorus
Christmas Suite for Orchestra
Christmas Music for Organ and Bells
German Christmas Carols
French Christmas Carols
I was fortunate to find this set - the records themselves are in excellent shape, played very rarely through the years. The music is simply outstanding.
The zip file for this one is large - the 4 records, scans of the box inner and outer cover, and the record sleeves for their artwork. So, queue it up, sit back, and let it download. Then pour yourself a scotch and Drambuie (or your preferred beverage), and enjoy nearly 3 hours of Joyous Christmas Music.
