Alfred Burt was an American jazz musician who composed fifteen original carols and sent them as Christmas cards to personal friends and family members, one a year between 1942 and 1954.

There's a whole generation that has yet to become acquainted with these timeless pieces, each as lovely and charming as can be imagined. Intended to be scored for TTBB chorus, piano, 2 woodwinds, percussion and string quintet, each of these proposed arrangements will be available individually. The suite can be performed as a whole, grouped severally as desired, or presented as stand-alone concert numbers.

Release date TBA.
