Review

One of the classic easy listening Christmas albums, 1966's MUSIC OF CHRISTMAS is perennially one of Percy Faith's most popular albums. Unlike Faith's later CHRISTMAS IS album, which included several vocal tracks, the 14 tracks on MUSIC OF CHRISTMAS are completely instrumental full-orchestra arrangements of some glorious Christmas songs, from the usual suspects-"Deck the Halls," "Joy to the World," etc.-to a batch of more obscure gems like the English carols "The Holly and the Ivy" and "Lo, How A Rose E'er Blooming." The CD remastering job is excellent, and the music is first-rate orchestral easy listening. Highly recommended to all easy listening fans, though admittedly non-fans might find it a bit soppy.
