Christmas In July 2008-Day 19

Hello! And welcome to day 19! I've got a real hodge-podge of stuff for you tonight, so I'm going to jump right in.

I'm starting off with three tracks by the Princeton Seminary Choir-Dr. David Hugh Jones, Director, all from their album Princeton Seminary Choir (RCA Victor LPM-1903, 1959). The tracks are O Come, O Come, Emmanuel, Jesus, Gentle Babe (A Joyous Christmas Song) and I Wonder As I Wander.

Track four is another version of I Wonder As I Wander, this time by Fred Waring And The Pennsylvanians, Dorothy Arms, Soloist. This is from the soundtrack to the Fred Waring Broadway production, Hear! Hear! (Decca DL 9031). Who knew he had his own Broadway show?

Track five is Sweet Gingerbread Man by Michel Legrand. This is from the same album, The Concert Legrand (RCA BGL1-1028), as the track I shared from Mr. Legrand earlier this month.

Track six is O Tannenbaum (Oh Pine Tree) from The Roger Wagner Chorale and the LP Folk Songs of The Old World, Volume 2: Western Europe (Capitol P8388).

Track seven is an unexpected version of The Little Drummer Boy as performed by The Pipes And Drums And Military Band Of The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards and their album of the same name (RCA (UK) PL25087, 1977). Gotta love those bagpipes!

Track eight is The Marvelous Toy by The Chad Mitchell Trio, from the album Singin' Our Minds (Mercury SR 60838, 1963). You had another song from this LP earlier in the year.

There you go, another eight song day. I think maybe I need to try to share a little less and get caught up. We'll see how that goes. Anyhow, here's the download link, now go get to downloadin'. And there's always the shares from 2006 and 2007 if you want more.
