"What better to do when elbow deep stuffing the Christmas Turkey or baking those Mince Pies than to wallow in the Christmas spirit, and by that I don't mean the Brandy!

"No, we have a better idea than that. Why not get yourself in the festive mood by playing some festive themed music by some of your favourite artists. We have three of those artists who have got themselves in the Christmas mood just for you and the details are listed below. All the albums are available now directly from the Voiceprint website. So have yourself a Merry Little Voiceprint Christmas."
