A Nice Holiday Collection

"Percy Faith's Christmas music has become a fixture for many during the holiday season. His third Christmas recording, CHRISTMAS IS, differs greatly from his first two recordings, but like the earlier recordings has a popular appeal and has endured over the years. The arrangers of the tracks included in this collection demonstrate a creativity that gives each track a unique flair. This recording contains holiday music rather than traditional Christmas carols, and Faith uses his choir in a more prominent manner than his first two collections. There is a variety to the works included in the collection. The world of Broadway and film are represented with "We Need a Little Christmas" from MAME and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" from MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS. The old "Hit parade" is represented with classics such as "White Christmas," "The Christmas Song" and "I'll Be Home For Christmas." Other contemporary tracks include "The Little Drummer Boy," Do You Hear What I Hear?" as well as Faith's own "Christmas Is." The tracks have been widely played on the radio, and listeners will probably discover they know these tracks rather well. It is a very relaxing collection that is suitable as background music or a recording just to listen to while relaxing."
The greatest Christmas album ever!

"Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas without Percy Faith.Even the rock stations top 40 and adult contempo play songs off of this album during the holiday season.It suprises me to here silver bells and rudolph the red nosed reindeer on the rock stations since these 2 songs qualify as beautiful music.If your like me and listen to beautiful music you listen to Percy Faith all year long but his Christmas music cd Christmas is is a special treat.Here is more info on the songs.
1)Christmas Is-Chrous2)I'll Be Home For Christmas-Lush Strings Very Beautiful.This Song starts out beautiful but gets even more beautiful and lush toward the middle part.This song at one time got played on radio stations.This is the most beautiful version of this song you will ever here.
3)The Little Drummer Boy-Orchestra and Chrous
4)Have Yourself A Very Merry Christmas-Lush Strings Very Beautiful
5)We Need A Little Christmas-Orchestra and Chrous This gets played on a lot of rock stations during the holiday season.
6)Silver Bells-Lush Strings The most beautiful version of this song you will here.This song is played frequently on top 40 and adult contempo rock stations.I look foward to every November so I can here this great version by Mastro Faith.
7)White Christmas-Lush Strings With Wordless Chrous.Very beautiful.
8)Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer-Lush Strings This song gets played on rock stations during the holiday season.
9)The Christmas Song-Orchestra And Chrous
10)Do You Here What I Here-Lush Strings Gets played on rock stations.
11)Happy Holiday-Orchestra and Chrous.This version is one of my favorites.I play Faith's version every holiday season.I also like Andy Williams version of this song as well as Steve Lawrence and Eddy Gorme's version.
If you like Beautiful Christmas Music this is the cd for you.Here is some other Christmas cd's by Faith I recommend but at least one of them is out of print I believe.Music Of Christmas This album just features Faith's orchestra and strings and is beautiful.Joy To The World gets a lot of play on radio stations off of this album during the holiday season.It also contains one of the most beautiful versions of The First Noel you will ever here.Music Of Christmas 2 Unfortuanly this was only out for 2 years and then dropped by Sony but I got it when it first come out and I highley recommend it.Like Music Of Christmas it just features the orchestra and strings.Collectibles will eventually be reissuing this so if you don't have it now you will be able to get it when Collectibles rereleases it.The Columbia Album Of Victor Herbert-Although not a Christmas album it features 2 Christmas Songs not on Faith's other 3 holiday albums.They are March Of The Toys and Toyland both instrumental and very beautiful.Chinatown/Summerplace 76 Although not a Christmas album this cd features Faith's version of Soledo(When A Child Is Born)a Christmas song.Bonvoyage/Carefree Although not a Christmas album this cd features Faith's Version of Brazilian Sleigh Bells a classic Christmas Song and Faith also wrote and composed this song.Hopefully Collectibles will reissiue Christmas Is and include Faith's Vesion of Sleigh Ride as a bonus but this version will do until then."
