Merry Christmas

Elizabeth Anderson and friends put a new twist into Christmas carols and CDs: eight Christmas tracks neatly packaged as a Christmas card with a vibrant front cover and room for a personal inscription.

You better watch out! You better not cry!

Harpsichordist Elizabeth Anderson will show you why ...
... on 'Merry Christmas'

'Merry Christmas' contains a collection of fun and traditional Christmas pieces, including tongue-in- cheek arrangements of 'Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer' and 'Santa Claus is coming to town' and exquisite performances of 'In dulci jubilo', 'Good King Wenceslas', 'I saw three ships' and 'We wish you a merry Christmas'.

Elizabeth Anderson (harpsichord) is joined by drums, glockenspiel, double bass and four singers from the acclaimed Choir of Ormond College.

With a vibrant cover, room for a personal inscription, and exhilarating music, it's a fun and unusual idea at a price similar to the regular Christmas cards you'll find at your local newsagent.
