"The composer list above is great, but I like to know who is singing the carols and when they were recorded. I can list the artists, but unfortunately I don't know the recording dates.
This CD playlist has surfaced for the past 25 years with various titles and covers. It sold as a Cassette Tape many years ago and then moved into the CD market. Both CBS Special Products (We Wish You A Merry Christmas - 1981) and Sony Music Special Products (All Time Christmas Favorites - 1999) have manufactured it as a CD. It seems to be a staple on the Christmas Music market.
The performances are enjoyable; but they are not necessarily my favorite Christmas music recordings by some of these artists. (Thus the 3 stars). It is, however, an interesting mix of Christmas songs and will help to put you in the "Christmas Mood".
