 A Christmas Classic December 27, 2012 By J. Tatnall (West Grove, PA) See All My Reviews "Shaw's first recording of Robert Russell Bennett's masterful symphonic arrangements remains a Christmas Classic. The sound is full and immediate; the performance full of vigor. The transfer to CD from the original RCA Living Stereo is excellent." Report Abuse
