The Australian Youth Orchestra plays 19 Christmas carols arranged especially for this recording by Australian composers and conducted by Graham Abbott. The two carols that have each been set twice make very interesting comparisons. The music is listenable, and you can give it away for Christmas with impunity!
“...for classical-music lovers really looking for something different ... This project of the Australian Youth Orchestra is already a legend, and they play it like it's repertoire material. A real seek-and-ye-shall-(hopefully)-find CD.”
