DECCA 532 3757 (EU)
16 Tracks 40:14 mins

Debbie Isitt's festive feel-good comedy is currently in UK cinemas and the director, along with editor Nicky Ager, are responsible for the original songs, sung by the children and cast of the film, seven of which feature on the official soundtrack album, in stores now; the final selection, "One Night One Moment," also featuring Hayley Westenra, who also makes a cameo appearance in the film, as well as singing "Silent Night."
In addition, the album also features festive offerings from the likes of the Jackson 5, Diana Decker, Ron Sexsmith, Bleu, Jesse Belvin and The Ronettes, and opens with a vintage performance of "Hooray For Hollywood" by the MGM Orchestra.
The accompanying booklet features lyrics for the original songs, together with a note from co-composers Isitt and Ager.
