Christmas songs in Chinese!
Another ten-incher, here. There are familiar Christmas numbers sung in Chinese--at least, I'm almost sure this is Chinese (so said the ad). I bought this for the novelty value, but these turn out to be gorgeous renditions in an almost completely Western style (which is kind of a novelty, really--the "Western style" part). Beautifully recorded, too, and with quite cool cover art. A winner.
For some reason, Joy to the World is titled Glory For a Child Is Born, and It Came Upon the Midnight Clear goes under, of all names, Christmas Card. Kind of adds to the charm of the whole thing. I thoroughly love this album.
