Back to the request lines, here's another oldie from my inaugural season, 2005, though I remastered it in 2011 for slightly better sound.  After the success of the soundtrack to The Third Man, zither music had a moment lasting a few years.  And few proponents were as prolific as Ruth Welcome.  She put out a dozen or more records in a span of maybe ten years, including this great Christmas LP.  You may not be familiar with the instrument, but you'll love the sound of Ruth Welcome-Christmas In Zitherland (Capitol ST 1782, Stereo, 1962).

1. It Came Upon The Midnight Clear/Lo, How A Rose Is Blooming/Angels And Shepherds
2. O Little Town Of Bethlehem/What Child Is This?/O Come Little Children/Away In A Manger
3. O Holy Night/Coventry Carol/Angels From The Realms Of Glory/Silent Night
4. Jingle Bells/Rudolph, The Red-Nosed Reindeer
5. I'll Be Home For Christmas
6. Silver Bells
7. The Christmas Song
8. Winter Wonderland
9. White Christmas

Thank you Ernie. This is truly a great record. I haven't heard it in years. That will shortly change.
