In 1967, Pete Seeger expanded upon the material he had recorded for the earlier seasonal collection The Nativity (Folkways FTS35001) to create Traditional Christmas Carols. Accompanying himself on either banjo or guitar, he sang several familiar songs, including "What Child Is This?," "The First Noël," and "Twelve Gates To The City," as well as more obscure ones. This would have been an ideal album for the singer to record before a live audience that might have sung along and livened up the proceedings; in the studio, with his correct but austere performances, it suggests a relatively bleak Christmas season.
