Overview

Classic Christmas for Your Family features several symphonies performing a variety of holiday favorites. The Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra & Chorus perform most of these songs, along with the CSSR State Philharmonic, Nicholaus Esterhazy Sinfonia, the Czecho-Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra, and the Slovak Philharmonic, who all contribute to a lesser extent. Many of the songs will be well-known to most: "Jingle Bells," "Up on the Housetop," "Winter Wonderland," and "Deck the Halls" being four examples. However, the majority of these 22 songs aren't nearly as widely known; some of them, such as "Russian Dance," are still less familiar.
