With heavy handed orchestrations featuring walls of violins and a great deal of timpani this is almost identical in sound to its sister volume 'Sing We Now Of Christmas'. You get yuletide evergreens like "O Come All Ye Faithful", "Silent Night", "The First Noel", etc - but in truth these productions are woefully stereotyped.

Hi there.
I am the music director of the Emmanuel Methodist Church here in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia. I just love this work that you have done and I declare that it is one of the most fabulous arrangements of the carols I have ever heard. I had bought the CD in 1996 and have been looking for the song book so that I may get my church choir to present this for Christmas. I really hope I can get a copy of the songbook so that I can prepare this work for Christmas 2010. I am quite keen on getting the orchestrated arrangement of the same work. Please do let me know what other products of this work that I can purchase.

Thank you and GOD bless

Charles Tan
