This recording includes two categories of Christmas “classics.” There are of course the more traditional, and mostly anonymous, carols such as "Les anges dans nos campagnes" (Angels We Have Heard on High), "Petit papa Noël" and "Sainte nuit" (Silent Night); but it also includes some of the most beautiful Christmas melodies of that golden age of the 1930s and 40s, when crooners gave us the likes of "White Christmas", "The Christmas Song", and even "I’ll Be Home for Christmas". While the singers such as Bing Crosby and Nat King Cole who immortalized these songs were household names, the songs’ composers were not; these old hands in the music business got credit on the sheet music but otherwise worked in the shadows of the big stars.

Each song has its own unique story, but the origins of the traditional carols are often hard to trace. For example, the melody of "The First Nowell"—which, despite the anglicized spelling of noël, the French word for Christmas, is as British as plum pudding—dates back to the 16th century, probably from the Cornwall region. However, the first published edition to include words is far more recent (1833), and it is possible that William Sandys, publisher of the collection entitled Christmas Carols, Ancient and Modern, also wrote the original English lyrics.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
