About

Did you know?

No carol has made it onto every album, but Good King Wenceslas and Silent Night have come close! (they are both on 4/5 albums)

The founders

The first edition of CCC (2002) was created mainly out of boredom. Brendan Petty and David Glavich were doing the usual busking at Tunstall Square in the days leading up to Christmas, when they decided to head back to Brendan's house to record some of the carols. Later that afternoon, the first CCC was cccomplete.

Dave and Brendan have been part of many musical endeavours together over the years, and CCC appeared to be a project worthy of annual repetition.

The others

Profits?

At this point in time, CCC is a non-profit group. All the money that comes in is simply used to pay for a larger production run the following year. We give a portion of money taken when selling CDs through certain groups, and we are happy to consider supporting any Christmas related charities or organisations, send us an email. We're just doing this for the love of the music!

Merry Christmas

As you can see in the photo, we're a crazy bunch. A crazy bunch that would like to wish you a Merry Christmas!
