Sweetest Dreams Be Thine. Do You Hear What I Hear.

Inspired by the unique sound and mood created by the harmony of women’s voices, the Pennywhistlers sing a wide-ranging program of songs in their inaugural album. Although primarily an a cappella group, the Pennywhistlers are backed by bass, guitar, banjo, and accordion on this recording. Liner notes provide song lyrics along with an English translation or summary.

The Pennywhistlers were an American singing group founded by folklorist and singer Ethel Raim and popular during the 1960s folk music revival. They specialized in Eastern European choral music, sung primarily a cappella. Folk singer Theodore Bikel, in his autobiography Theo, called them "the closest to the real thing in authenticity in the United States.
