Product Description

The magnificent voices of the Huddersfield Choral Society celebrate the Christmas season with heart-warming arrangements of our favorite carols. Undoubtedly the hardiest annual of the entire musical repertory, the carol, in one form or another, has held its own against the twin ravages of time and taste, out-witting the fickleness of fashion and fad down the ages through its remarkable mutability. The simple nature of the carol allowed it to absorb the cross-currents and reflections of religious observance and popular pickiness, giving it a peculiar freedom to be turned into either devotion or diversion for both, the religiously inclined or the die-hard holyday reveller. There are very few musical numbers that are still routinely sung, year in and year out, in the most solemn of cathedrals, shabby street corners, grand villas, humble homes, austere churches and rough-and-tumble bars the world over.
