 A Real Christmas Stocking stuffer January 15, 2013 By JAMES PENCE (LITTLE ROCK, AR) See All My Reviews "The King Singers arrangement of the Twelve Days of Christmas was what drew me to select this DVD. I heard the selection on PBS. Checking out ArkivMusic.com. I found that a DVD version was available. This has to be one o the most enjoyable Christmas DVD.s You have a full Morman Tabernacle Choir, The King Singers, and orchestra, dancers, to present the merriest of events of the season. I think everyone who enjoys the music of Christmas should have a copy to listen, love and share with their friends and families.." Report Abuse
