The Jovial Christmas (CDR20)

This CD makes an ideal present for both the music hall enthusiast, or anyone tired of modern "entertainment" who wants to discover what amused Christmas revellers in the early part of the 20th Century. The CD takes us on a journey through the Christmas Celebrations, from the first preparations of Jack Pleasants who is "Learning a song for Christmas" to Will Fyffe's New Year, by way of Max Miller's Christmas Dinner. There are songs, recitations, visits to the pantomime and ghost stories, all recorded between 1907 and 1931.
