AllMusic Review by Steve Leggett

A brief collection of holiday favorites sung by the Fireside Singers, Reader's Digest's Joy to the World: Here Comes Santa Claus features full chorale singing and bright traditional arrangements, full of glockenspiels and string sections, chimes and appropriate bells. Nothing is too threatening or too innovative here, as befits the season, making this a disc perfect for background music or singalongs.
