Time for another exciting installment of TV preachers on record. Except this time, it's not really a TV preacher, and it's more of a guest spot instead of a headlining gig. The preacher is Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, someone who's certainly not a stranger to recording or the airwaves. I think there are still a few of his earlier Guideposts Christmas records I'm still searching for, but this one will do until the earlier stuff comes along. The headliners here are the members of The Marble Collegiate Church Choir, showing up in both group and solo settings.  There's some good music here, and of course a few spoken word segments from Dr. Peale. I hope it's something you can enjoy.  This is The Marble Collegiate Church Choir With Chamber Orchestra, Featuring Dr. Norman Vincent Peale-Love On Earth-Favorite Songs Of Christmas (Dynamic Recording Studios XPL-1025, Stereo).
