Calliope Christmas Music

I wonder if A-513 is what Ray Siou recut as A-1503 "Yule Log Crackles"?
The label gives no indication of arranger or of the person loaning the
roll for recutting which Ray often did.  The tunes are:

  1. Silent Night
  2. Santa Claus is Coming to Town
  3. Jingle Bells
  4. Winter Wonderland
  5. Adeste Fidelis
  6. Little Town of Bethlehem
  7. Hark! The Herald Angeles Sing
  8. It Came Upon the Midnight Clear
  9. O Christmas Tree
  10. Auld Lang Syne

If you are going to have A-513 recut you can put me down for one copy.
Have you played it to identify the tunes?

Dave's roll is terrific!  If anyone has other Christmas G-rolls for
recutting I would also be interested in having a copy.
