Nat King Cole The Christmas Song on Numbered Hybrid SACD from Audio Fidelity
Nat King Cole's flawless vocals combined with ever so sweet orchestrations and choral backing, provide a collection of standard Christmas carols, hymns and songs here that gloriously capture the spirit of the season. Cole sings songs full of love in his legendary relaxed and unpretentious style while the orchestra and chorus under the direction of Ralph Carmichael highlight Cole's vocal interpretations beautifully.
The Christmas Song was the best-selling holiday album of the 1960s and the title track, wonderfully sung to an accompaniment of piano and strings, is one of Cole's most widely heard recordings not to mention one of the most-performed Christmas songs of all time.
Further superb tracks include a stirring rendition of "Adeste Fideles" (in Latin) and "O Holy Night," with a 27-string orchestra plus "Deck the Halls," "O Little Town of Bethlehem." "Hark the Herald Angels Sing." "Away In A Manger." "Joy To the World," "Silent Night" and "O Tannenbaum" (in German).
The Christmas Song is a true masterwork which honors the season and its uplifting message like no other and its now available on a flattering numbered limited edition Hybrid SACD from Audio Fidelity just in time for the holidays!
