Christmas Music For The Atari

B.I.G. Software announces the release of the first three of a scheduled seven volumes of Christmas Music for the Atari 400/800 Computer.

Each volume contains ten Christmas favorites and requires only a BASIC cartridge for operation. Every volume contains a different set of songs such as Silent Night, The First Noel, and many other favorites. Each song features four-part harmony and smooth, accurate song reproduction.

The program is available in two formats: Version One for 8K to 24K tape drives or 16K to 32K disk drives; and Version Two for 32K tape or 40K disk. Version Two allows the user a wide variety of options for song play. Individual songs can be selected, and each song can be repeated a given number of times or allowed to play continuously. In addition, the user can play all ten songs in the order they are listed in the program, or he can select from the available songs. This sequence can then be repeated indefinitely, and each song within the sequence can also be set for multiple play.

Christmas Music Volumes 4, 5 and 6 are scheduled for release in October, and Volume 7 in early November. Volume 7 will feature the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel's Messiah, Ave Maria, O Holy Night, and several other well-known selections. Due to the memory requirements for Volume 7, it will be available only in the Version Two format.

Future releases will include Pop and Show Tunes, Country and Western, as well as a wide selection of Classical music.

Retail prices range from $12.95 for a one-volume tape version to $34.95 for the three-volume disk. Words to all songs are available at a small additional cost.
