Released for last year's Christmas, though obviously sales will be almost as good in the 2006 yuletide. A three-CD box containing just about every carol you could possibly think of, this features two discs with the Sheridan Ball Singers accompanied by the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra plus disc three released as a 'Caroling Accompaniment CD'. If you're looking for lush renditions of songs like "O Holy Night", "We Three Kings", "Hark, The Herald Angels Sing", etc, etc interspersed with a few clankers like "Jingle Bells" and "We Wish You A Merry Christmas" then the choir, recorded in Anaheim, California, do a reasonable job with soprano soloist Maria Cristina Navarro in particularly good voice.
