A Very Sissel Christmas

There is an excellent article in today's Deseret Morning News in Salt Lake City called "A very Sissel Christmas." Coincidentally, for years I've made compilation CDs every XMAS (before Sissel Christmas albums were available for sale in America) and given them to my friends and also used the title "A Very Sissel Christmas."

Still #1

"Spirit of the Season" featuring Sissel and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir is still #1 on the Billboard Classical chart for the sixth week in a row. This album was also released this week in Norway. Previously, it wasn't planned for release there this year, but so many Norwegians demanded the album featuring their beloved Sissel that Universal Norway relented and officially released it there on 10. December.

Sissel's solo album, "Northern Lights," moved into the top 10 on the Billboard Classical Crossover chart this week moving up to #10 from #11 last week. This is Sissel's highest solo chart position ever in the USA. Buy more copies of "Northern Lights" as Christmas presents and let's watch it go higher!
