What Is Christmas

christmasbigThe poem, What Is Christmas, on the front cover was written by my grandfather for my mother, after she came home from gradeschool one day and announced she needed a Christmas poem to recite at school. Her dad said the he did not know of a good poem about Christmas, but he would write her one. The resulting What Is Christmas poem turned out to be a gem. My grandmother created the design and artwork. Christmas cards and posters of this poem are available at www.neihardt.com.

This CD is a collection of unique arrangements of well known and not so well known Christmas Carols and pieces. I meant it to be a collection that can be played and re-played throughout the Christmas Season. In fact, several have told me that What Is Christmas is a CD that they can “listen to over and over without tiring of it.” I do hope you will get great satisfaction from it as well.
