Christmas as interpreted by some of the world's greatest singers

This 18-track CD was issued by the Metropolitan Opera in 2000 and is a tuneful mixture of 20th Century singers from Beniamino Gigli to Roberto Alagna. The songs range from the traditional `Adeste Fideles' to Irving Berlin's `White Christmas.' The CD insert narrates the history of each song and lists the singer, chorus, and orchestral accompaniment for each track. This is always one of the first CDs I play to put me in the mood for decorating the tree, making cookies and all of those other traditional Christmas chores. A complete list of tracks is as follows:

1. Adam: Cantique de Noël - Roberto Alagna
2. Angels We Have Heard on High--Benita Valente
3. I Wonder as I Wander--Leontyne Price
4. Herbeck: Pueri Concinite--Plácido Domingo
5. Bizet: Agnus Dei--Risë Stevens
6. Handel: He Shall Feed His Flock--Brigitte Fassbaender, Lucia Popp
7. Joy to the World--Barbara Hendricks
8. Schubert: Ave Maria--Erna Berger
9. Brahms: Geistliches Wiegenlied--Christa Ludwig
10. Mascagni: Ave Maria--John McCormack
11. Franck: Panis Angelicus--Franco Corelli
12. Berlioz: O mon cher fils--Victoria de los Angeles, Roger Soyer
13. Drei Kö'ge wander aus Morgenland--Herman Prey
14. Adeste Fideles--Beniamino Gigli
15. Trois anges sont venus ce soir--Barbara Hendricks
16. White Christmas--Kiri Te Kanawa, Roberto Alagna, Thomas Hampson
17. The First Nowell--Elizabeth Schwarzkopf
18. Silent Night--Marion Anderson
