This Robert Shaw release is the perfect follow-up to The Many Moods of Christmas. On this CD, Telarc recreates the programs from superb performances of Robert Shaw and the famous Robert Shaw Chorale.

All of these carols are heard in delightful arrangements by Alice Parker and Robert Shaw. Most date from the early 1950s and the immensely popular concerts and recordings of the Robert Shaw Chorale. Adding a bit of harmony here, some simple counterpoint there, Shaw and Parker never obscure the eloquence of the songs themselves. The carols still speak directly to us with their message of hope, joy, and wonder.
