This children's overview of Christmas customs and Christmas music completely captivated me. The choral work, solo voices and orchestration are all first-rate, and the captivating narration by a variety of children's and adult voices covers everything from Santa's earliest origins to present-day Christmas customs. At the same time, it does justice to the Nativity story and the meaning of the Christmas event. Any child (probably 5 and up) will be delighted, and adults will enjoy sharing it with them.
