Has anyone picked this up yet, or know anything about its contents?

I'm all for classic Xmas recordings, so this piques my interest a bit.

This is nothing more than a box set of previously released Christmas albums by Mario Lanza, Placido Domingo, Eileen Farrell, Leonard Bernstein and Robert Shaw.

Thanks, Chip. Since I don't have any of these albums, can you tell me your opinion of them? If worth it, I may pick it up. Thanks again, Ben

The Robert Shaw album in this box set (his third Christmas album) is in my 2nd Tier and the Leonard Bernstein is in my 3rd Tier.

As for the other 3 albums in this box set, I myself am not partial to operatic-style Christmas music; but if you are, then you will like the Mario Lanza, Placido Domingo and Eileen Farrell Christmas albums.

The Mario Lanza set is the Remake of the early '50's recordings,made only months before Lanza's untimely passing in October 7,1959..it's also in "Living Stereo",as opposed to his other Christmas material..just imagine if he'd lived after '59..one can only wonder what Christmas song Lanza would've recorded! Oh,well.. Love & Peace to all,Michael Boyce
