Would you like to hear some gentle festive music played and sung by a group of Taiwanese Christians in the 60s? Then thank goodness for Christmas with Heavenly Melody, an LP that I picked up in a local charity shop.
Internet research reveals that Heavenly Melody were formed in 1963, and are still going strong (albeit with a frequently-replenished lineup, Morning Musume-style). They were brought together by an American pastor in Taiwan, and had their own TV show for ten years on Overseas Radio & Television, Inc – a Christian network.
Here are three of my favourite tracks from the album. Right-click to download, or listen to the streams.
