Summary

Summary

A Classical Kids Christmas explores the holiday with over 30 traditional carols and Christmas songs as performed by children's choirs, soloists, and instrumentalists, as well as some of the season's classic poems. Highlights include "Go Tell It on the Mountain," "Christmas Is I'cumin," "Here We Come Awassailing," "O Tannenbaum," and "What Shall We Bring?," along with readings of "The Night Before Christmas" and "A Christmas Carol." The liner notes include explanations of some of the archaic and ethnic terms in the songs, and the set also includes a Classical Kids Christmas ornament. Overall, A Classical Kids Christmas is a fun and festive introduction to traditional Christmas music. ~ Heather Phares
