Another Westminster Returns

I'm pretty much done with the reshares for the season, but I did find this rip on my hard drive of something that I first shared out in 2010, so I figured I'd throw the new rip and new scan up here and call it a remaster.  It's another one of those Christmas albums from Westminster, one that you very rarely see.  It's nothing flashy like Ferrante & Teicher or organ-based like Dick Leibert, instead it's very much in the vein of those Randolph Singers records that people seem to like.  So if you're still around at this late date and that sounds like something you might want to hear, please lend an ear to Westminster Choraleers-Christmas At Home-Let's All Sing Carols (Westminster WP 6027, Mono, 1956).

1. Silent Night
2. Deck The Hall
3. O Little Town Of Bethlehem
4. God Rest You Merry, Gentlemen
5. Angels We Have Heard On High
6. Good King Wenceslas
7. Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
8. O Christmas Tree
9. In Dulci Jubilo
10. Adeste Fideles
11. Away In A Manger
12. Joy To The World!
13. The First Nowell
14. O Sanctissima
15. It Came Upon The Midnight Clear
16. The Holly And The Ivy
17. This Day Is Born Emmanuel
18. Good Christian Men, Rejoice

I love the covers of these albums that you are sharing as much as the music! Thanks and yes, I am still here! It has been a thrill to have you back in the saddle again this year. Your efforts are greatly appreciated.

Ditto on the covers. Simply put, they're awesome. It makes a huge difference to include them and the liner notes, etc.

...oh and btw if you feel like it I'd love to put my ears on one of those Randolph Singers album...at your convenience of course...

Ernie said...

You mean the ones I reposted a couple weeks ago?

The one I had in mind was the mono version: The Randolph Singers-David Randolph, Director-Christmas Carols Vol. 1 (Westminster WP 6022, 1951, Mono) from 2010

Thank you Ernie!

Ernie said...

You mean the mono versions (of both volumes) I shared in the very first comment when I shared out the stereo version?

house303 said...

Oh! Yeah that's what I meant. I should have been more careful and read the comments. Thank you for your time and patience!
