The story behind the #Christmas song, "It's Christmas Day"

It's Christmas Day has been performed by many thousands of choirs worldwide in the last few years. When first released, 'It's Christmas Day' featuring The Balfron Christmas Stars received coverage on national TV and radio. In the past few years, thousands of choirs and soloists have performed our Christmas carol in countries such as USA, India, Holland, Spain, Italy, Poland, Canada ,Russia, Germany, The Philippines as well as the UK and many other countries. In fact, the chances are there is a choir near you who have performed the song at some point.

Watch the video for the full story of the song (though the stats have changed since this video was made).

The latest 2019 instrumental release is by award winning arranger Enzo De Rosa and his beautiful arrangement received it's debut play on BBC Radio last Christmas. It is mastered by Grammy winning Vlado Meller at Vlado Meller Mastering. Vlado is famous for his work with Andrea Bocelli, Johnny Cash, Celine Dion, Duran Duran, Julio Iglesias, Michael Jackson, Paul McCartney, George Michael, Barbra Streisand and many more.

"Where do I see this new version? It's kind of a throwback to some of the instrumental Christmas music you would hear in the 40's and 50's and I feel it encapsulates Christmas perfectly." ~Dougie Campbell
