I thought it would be the best time to get the Holiday season started with this set of five Christmas duets. They incorporate a heavy use of counterpoint as you can tell. As in all of our recordings, these were “first takes” and should give you a good example of how they will go together with good readers. The collection includes Deck the Halls, Frosty the Snowman, O Christmas Tree, the Christmas Song and Sleigh Ride.
