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.

Wow! Really looking forward to this one. Did you thrift this locally or was it an eBay find?

This is really something. They sure had to got to a lot of effort to record this album.

So interesting! Makes me wonder if it has its origins in Christian missionary work (things along these lines are often made for raising funds back in the States, especially around the holidays). Thanks so much for sharing!

Happy to share this. And, Ernie, it was an eBay discovery.
