Christmas has provided a rich seam of subject matter for songwriters to mine over the years, building on a significant repertoire of carols and other religious songs in the traditional arena, and an ever-growing catalogue of secular songs for people to enjoy during a season when music has always been an essential element of the festivities. In the era of the commercial record sales charts, the competition for that elusive Christmas No. 1 hit has often been intense, and some notable seasonal hits have been major sellers over the years. This great-value 40-track 2-CD collection comprises some of the many evocative songs from that fount of classic recordings, many of which surface year after year on radio during December and which help to create the desired Yuletide atmosphere on any occasion - in our shopping centres to help keep the tills jangling, or at home while the presents are being opened. It features a host of big names from the pop and easy listening era, and naturally includes some of the memorable seasonal hits, most notably "White Christmas", the biggest one of them all. We can guarantee that you and your guests will be singing along to them
