“AND THE ANGELS SING.” North Star Records NS0035. The problem with “And the Angels Sing” is that they don’t, nor does anybody else. Though solidly--even imaginatively, in the numbers featuring oboe--arranged, these varied instrumental settings of standard Christmas fare seldom rise above a pleasant party background. The recorded sound on this disc, created as a companion to a songbook of the same title produced by the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, favors strings and woodwinds over the bright and brittle brass.
