Think of it not as serious music but as background sound for the mass production of paper chains or the pouring out of festive lemonade, and even adults might enjoy Christmas Songs and Carols. This CD supplies 28 tracks with an hour's playing time. Secular and spiritual numbers chase one another at a relentless canter, Santa and his reindeer run neck and neck with the infant Jesus and the angels, all of them backed by whooping electronic fanfares, synthetic-solemn organs and the tolling and tinkling of countless bells. It's pretty cheap and it's certainly cheerful.
Christmas Songs and Carols is pound;5 from Early Learning Centre stores nationwide. Product code EL 104075.
