The album includes a definitive rendition of the Peanuts theme song, “Linus and Lucy,” along with two original compositions, “Christmas Time Is Here” and “Skating,” now considered holiday classics. Additionally, it features arrangements of timeless holiday tunes such as “O Tannenbaum” and “What Child is This,” among others.
