Deutschland, Deutschland

Are you aching for some more foreign Christmas carols? Then here's your chance for a low-budget recording of some German carols, complete with a sheet that gives you all the words, in both English and German!  You can't beat that with a stick! I'm not sure of the origin of this recording, but I don't think it began life on UA.  Look close at the included lyric sheet, and it's crediting the Colonial label. I've never seen a Christmas recording on that label, but I've been proven wrong before. While I work on solving this mystery, please download and sing along with The International Chorale-Christmas Sing Along In German (AKA A German Christmas) (United Artists SP-183, Stereo, 1978).

1. O Du Frohliche O Du Selige
2. Alle Jahre Wieder
3. Die Weihnachtsnachtigall
4. Es Ist Ein Ros' Entsprungen
5. Ehre Sei Gott
6. Morgen Kinder Wird's Was Geben
7. Susser Die Glocken Nie Klingen
8. O, Tannenbaum, O, Tannenbaum
9. Ihr Kinderlein' Kommet
10. Maria Auf Dem Berge
11. In Dulci Jubilo
12. Am Weihnachtsbaum Die Lichter Brennen
13. Stille Nacht' Heilige Nacht
14. Maria Durch Ein' Dornwald Ging
15. Von Himmel Hoch
