Alfred Burt, the son of an Episcopal minister, was a young jazz musician, who composed fifteen, now legendary, Christmas Carols between 1942 and 1954.
With each Christmas since his early death at the age of 33, the Carols reach a wider and more appreciative audience.
Al Burt's music has gained international acceptance among orchestras, choirs, choral groups, civic organizations, and very ordinary people.
