It's Snow-ing!

From the somewhat appropriately named Henry Snow, here's a nice album of choral Christmas music.  No idea who Henry Snow actually is, though. I posted this before, and nobody really had much information about it.  So I'll throw it up here again, and maybe someone will be able to fill us in.  I do remember that I liked it, so perhaps you will as well.  Please download The Henry Snow Singers-The Little Drummer Boy And Other Christmas Favorites (Whitehall WH 20023 (A Product Of Westminster), Mono, 1959).  Billboard tells me that Little Drummer Boy b/w Holly Green (And Cotton Candy White) was released as a single in 1959, following on the success of Harry Simeone's hit, so I'm assuming the LP came out in the same year.  I've no proof of that, so if you know different, don't keep it to yourself. 1959 also means there might be a stereo version of this floating around somewhere...
