Great Christmas music -- but the sleeve MIGHT have a printin

"I purchased this CD, played it, and discovered that what I was listening to didn't match the CD sleeve; Track 2 and Track 7 were switched. I contacted the publisher and was told they were aware of the error. They said that later shipments of the CD contained a corrected contents list. If it is there at all, the printing error should not deter any potential buyer from purchasing this very fine recording. If need be, just get out your pen and fix the sleeve. :) Track 2 on the CD actually is "A Christmas Flourish," arranged by Randol Alan Bass. It is a choral medley of "Shiloh," "Joy To The World," "Silent Night" and "Angels We Have Heard On High." Track 7 on the CD actually is "Seasonal Sounds," also arranged by Randol Alan Bass. It is a choral medley of "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town," "Here Comes Santa Claus," "Rudolf The Red-Nosed Reindeer" "Frosty The Snowman" and "Jingle Bells." These are excellent arrangements, and the CD is a delight. Highly recommended."
Wait until you hear the SACD Stereo/Surround/Hybrid Disc

"The CD was great, but this is a truly spectacular recording in the SACD version. While the selections tilt the balance more towards the secular, one of the most richly rewarding large versions of Silent Night are included in the "A Christmas Flourish" medley, all grounded by the deep pedal tones of the C. B. Fisk pipe organ. The Festival Fanfare for Christmas is great fun.
This disc certainly makes a joyful noise and will give your sound system a full workout!"
There are some great songs that should be classics

"This CD has some great songs that I haven't seen on other CDs before, but it also has some cheesy ones (albeit well performed). Favorites include This Christmastide, O Magnum Mysterium, and the Twelve Days after Christmas. On the cheesy side...Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas. Overall, a good album."
