Klein One

Time once again to share out a whole collection of one artist's Christmas output.This time it's carilloner John Klein. Mr. Klein released plenty of carillon LPs over the years, and a fair number of them are Christmas. To my knowledge, only one of them has been released on CD, and one is now available for downloaded legally, but I'll get to those later. Right now I'm going to reshare what is probably my favorite Christmas LP of his, one that was recorded in conjunction with the Coca-Cola Company and the 1964 World's Fair. You'll have to download the share and read the enclosed booklet to learn all the particulars, and you'll have some great carillon with orchestra music to listen to while you read. Please download John Klein, Orchestra And Chorus Arranged And Conducted By Henri Rene-Let's Ring The Bells All Around The Christmas Tree (RCA Victor LSP-2914, Stereo, 1964). I first shared this out in mono back in 2006, but the stereo version only dates to last year.

1. Silent Night; O Little Town Of Bethlehem; We Wish You A Merry Christmas
2. All Around The Christmas Tree
3. Sleigh Ride
4. Joy To The World; Adeste Fideles; Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
5. The Little Drummer Boy
6. O Holy Night
7. God Rest You Merry, Gentlemen; O Christmas Tree; Deck The Halls
8. I'll Be Home For Christmas
9. Greensleeves
10. Away In A Manger; The First Noel; It Came Upon A Midnight Clear
11. The Christmas Song
12. Ave Maria (Bach-Gounod)
