Here, beautifully presented in 3-D pop-ups, are five familiar and much-loved carols: O Christmas Tree, Silent Night, We Three Kings, Hark the Herald Angels Sing and Ding Dong Merrily on High. Complemented by the melody line and guitar chords, these carols evoke the traditional spirit of Christmas.
Angels climb up to decorate a swirling Christmas tree; a seraphic sphere mysteriously appears in the silent night above a miniature, glowing, Nativity; the Three King's star slowly turns into a rose-window kaleidoscope; hosts of angels wing in flight across the sky; and, in a rousing finale, ranks of small choirboys watch as two choristers take turns to ring the great cathedral bell. This beautiful and ingenious pop-up treasury makes a perfect Christmas gift.
