Comments about Hal Leonard Alfred Burt Christmas Carols 50th Anniversary Edition arranged for piano, vocal, and guitar (P/V/G):
I'm a long time fan of the Burt carols, having lived a few years in Marquette MI where they got started. Followers of the Burt Carols know that these were composed by Alfred Burt and sent as family Christmas cards from 1942 until 1954, the Christmas following his early death. This edition has all 15 carols, including one that the Shawnee Press choral editions do not have. All are printed in a clear, large format with the usual treble and bass clefs (in most cases giving the carol very similar to the way it appeared on the Christmas card) plus a separate vocal line and guitar chords. Each carol has some history given by Anne Burt, Alfred's wife, and a photo of the Christmas card on which it appeared. This is a terrific, definitive edition of the Burt carols.
Let's see, 15 carols, history, photos of the original cards. All for a very reasonable price. Great!
