Been working on this one for a little while now, and finally pulled it all together tonight for your enjoyment.  The unfortunately named Phil Spitalny was the leader of an all-girl orchestra and choir, and if memory serves, he wound up marrying his start attraction, a violinist named Evelyn. I suppose times were different then.  An all-female orchestra today would still be something, but not quite the attraction it was in it's day.  Anyhow, it's an interesting little album, I think you'll enjoy it.  This is Phil Spitalny And His Hour Of Charm All-Girl Orchestra And Choir-Christmas Carols By The Hour Of Charm (RCA Victor 10" 33 RPM LPM 53, Mono, 1951).

1. Silent Night
2. 'Twas The Night Before Christmas
3. Adeste Fideles (O Come, All Ye Faithful)
4. Hark! The Herald Angels Sing; Oh Little Town Of Bethlehem
5. Joy To The World; The First Noël
6. Carol Of The Bells; God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen
