Counting The Days Christmas CD

Our new Christmas album is now available. It includes our festive favourites and the most requested songs from Christmasses Past, Present and (hopefully Future).  The CD features our trademark harmonies on carols you know and love, carols you don't know (but will love) and a couple of  "modern" tracks to round the whole thing out. Recorded and produced by Banks Audio Theatre, this CD marks an exciting progression in our sound that we hope you'll love as much as we do! To buy a copy come and see us perform or contact us via the site. Give your ears a treat for only £12 including UK P&P or ask about discounts for bundles including this CD, and our other albums Profile and 'Round the Globe.

A beautiful lullaby the recalls the forgotten victims of the Christmas story.

Although possibly Swedish in origin, we've put this song together for you so there's no need for an Allen key or screwdriver.

... From The Skeptics to You.

 

12. The 12 Days of Christmas
... Three Singers Singing...
