Carols of Many Nations

There is great variety in which people at different times and in different parts of the world spend Christmas. The more we know of Christmas, in former times and throughout the world, the better we can understand the Christmas message.

The Australian Children's Choir sings carols from countries around the world.

The Australian Children’s Choir consists of children of various ethnic backgrounds. It was formed in 1977, and filled a need for choral opportunities for girls as well as boys. On this recording there are 44 voices ranging in age from nine to 15 years.
