It may be the last time you see City Council in perfect harmony. With fake fur, old CDs and industrial-strength glue, Art Works co-owner Glenda Kotchish turned the nine council members into a heavenly holiday choir of tree ornaments.

Councilman Marty Jewell (pictured) is one of her favorites: “He's smiling and he looks like, ‘I'm enjoying singing here.'” Kotchish suggests sticking a Christmas light through the hole of the CD when you hang each ornament on the tree, to make the little songbook light up.

The ornaments are $8 each, or $24 for the set, at Art Works in Manchester.
