A heart-warming Christmas CD that even a musical snob needn’t be ashamed to enjoy!

Somebody stole my original copy of this CD (I left it in a CD player after the Christmas office party was over and by the time I went back to get it, it was gone). So I went out and bought another copy–it’s THAT good. Fiedler had a wonderful touch with this kind of stuff, balancing elegance and sentimentality. It’s the kind of schmalz a guy like me, who takes classical music very seriously, can still listen to without shame . . . nay, with a good deal of enjoyment and a warm feeling inside!
