This the the band’s second offering of Christmas music, following Christmas Presence (1992).

Recorded in January 2010, this is the final recording conducted by Bandmaster James Anderson before his untimely death in October of that year. Indeed, he was undergoing a very aggressive treatment program when the recording was made as he waged a valiant and inspiring battle against the cancer the eventually took his life. The National Capital Band dedicates this recording to Bandmaster James Anderson, with love, respect, admiration and affection. Auld Lang Syne, Jim.
