Every december, I put it into the cd player of my car. That is the best christmas cd I ever had. I like Ricardo Cocciante and Sarah best.

I think every Sarah Brightman fan should have this CD. She does a real down Santa Claus is Coming to Town - don't miss it. The album is great - voices blend beautifully - also Sarah's first version of First of May is precious - the second version is just OK. I play this CD time after time, year after year. Have it on my MP3 player and in all my computers in Windows Media Player. Do yourself a favor and give yourself a Christmas present - buy this CD - you will thank me a hundred times for telling you about it.
