Having heard this just about everywhere, I decided that instead of repeatedly hearing bits, I would get the CD and hear the lot. I was open minded about this as I do not have any other Aled Jones music. What a very pleasant surprise. It is an enchanting CD but the hidden bonus which I was not aware of, nor heard discussed anywhere, is that on the final track- Drummer Boy, there is the wonderful surprise of dear Terry Wogan's voice as he duets with the older Aled in, I think, 2008.Terry mainly does the pom pom pom poms but also does sing.Can't believe he is no more.......
Frankly it is worth getting the cd just to hear Terry's voice, but it really is a lovely cd and well worth adding into the festivities. The mix and match of old and new voices is very well done. Track 13 is my favourite and may well get worn out!
