From Mid-November through New Year’s Eve, Tim Whitsett’s Loco Electric Orchestra “don their gay apparel,” top up their mugs of eggnog, and assume their nome de Noel as the North Polish Symphony. It is the time, after all, to go a-Christmas caroling, and The North Polish Symphony is imbued with the joyful spirit of the season.

Traditionalists as they are, The North Polish Symphony selected songs for this album that have persistently proven popular and, indeed, have been loved by generations. Songs such as “O Come All Ye Faithful”, “We Three Kings”, “O Holy Night”, “Greensleeves”, “Angels We Have Heard on High”, and “What Child is This” are rendered in Renaissance style, respectfully freshened with a dash of modern instrumentation.

In addition, the NPS reached back through the centuries to brush off two 16th century airs perfect for the season: “Mistletoe Minuet” and “Pavane de Noel”.

And to round out the album in anthemic fashion, two18th century works by Georg Friedrich Handel are arranged in medley form entitled “WeinachtsGemisch” (“Christmas Medley”).

As you deck your halls with Christmas festoonery this year, let the North Polish Symphony provide your essential musical backdrop for holiday cheer.
