This is a wonderful CD of holiday music. The two pieces by Carroll Coates ('A Song For Christmas' and 'The Holiday Song') alone are worth the price of the CD. Ida Zecco is a fine musician with a magnificent vocal instrument. There is great variety in what this CD offers. From the gentle and touching ('A Child is Born' and 'Bel Bambino', a beautiful duet with Randy Zinkus) to the festive and frolicking ('Santa Baby' and another fine duet, 'Baby, It's Cold Outside' with Jim Porcella). Another highlight is the Ahrens and Flaherty tune, 'All Those Christmas Cliches'. This is a great addition to any holiday CD collection. Who knows, you might even find yourself listening to it in July!
