The Singers Unlimited: Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas.

Another Christmas standard by The Singers Unlimited from their 1972 album “Christmas”. The piece was written in 1944 by Hugh Martin and Ralph Blane for the musical “Meet Me In St. Louis” and performed by Judy Garland. Frank Sinatra recorded it for his album “A Jolly Christmas” but that required a small change in the lyrics. Read the story in Wikipedia. Gene Purling made a beautiful arrangement for this a capella performance. A capella is Italian for “singing in the manner of the church”. The recording ends with a spoken Christmas message by Bonnie Herman.
