5.0 out of 5 stars a voice teacher and early music fan October 25, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase

This is indeed one of the most tasty group of Christmas songs that I have come across in my many years of listening. It leans toward sacred, but there are tunes such 'White Christmas' sung beautifully by Thomas Hampson and a Brass Choir plays a Medley of songs such as Sleigh ride, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas etc. In addition to the many choirs there are instrumental groups that not only accompany, but solo occasionally.

The Participants Include: Michael George Choirs of Coventry & Litchfield Cathedrals (three selections)-Choir of New College Oxford (seven selections)-Heinrich Schutz Choir(one selection)-Will Glahe's Children's Choir (one selection)- Brown University Chorus with Boston Camerata (one selection)-Concentus Weien (3 selections)-Monteverdi Choir(one selection)-Sumi Jo(three selections)-Dawn Upshaw & Chanticleer (seven selections)-Jose Carreras (one selection)-Placido Domingo (one selection)-Kiri Te Kanawa (one selection). Instrumental groups: London Brass-Boston Camerata-Bolshoi Symphony.

Some of the carols are: 'O come, come Emmanuel'-'Once in 'Royal David's City'-'The Shepherd's Farewell'-'Agnus Dei'-The Holly and the Ivy'-'Panis Angelicus'-'O Holy Night'-'Jauchzet, frohlocket'-'Hallelujah Chorus'. TAKE NOTE THAT THE SELECTIONS ARE LISTED UNDER THE cd PICTURE.

As you can see there is variety and it's all up-scale musical works rendered by first class musicians. How can you go wrong? And it's so good to get away from 'mall music'.

1.0 out of 5 stars I'm sure the music is beautiful. December 17, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If only I could hear it. Should have listened to the previous reviewer's comments about the recording quality.
Only 2 tracks would play, and those were so scratchy and faint. I thought I was listening to scratchy old 45's on a Barbie turntable playing in the other room. So sad. I'm totally bummed as I was looking forward to listening to lovely vocals and classical music.

4.0 out of 5 stars A lovely addition to our Christmas album collection December 27, 2013
By Inez
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This only gets four stars because it is not wonderfully gorgeous in content but it does provide a nice alternative to the more modern collections that we have on our other CDs. Still, while this suits us well enough, I do wonder if I could have gotten a better album had I looked a little harder. But, it is a keeper.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good recording & superb vocals & orchestra February 27, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This may be one of the best CD of my Christmas Carols CDs collection. The vocals & orchestra are well balance, the voices are clear & strong, some of the songs are not English, this is good as it gives us a chance to hear carols in other languages ! You won't go wrong by buying it !

2.0 out of 5 stars I was expecting something else... January 6, 2014
By Kyra
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I should have done more research into this, but this is more opera style Christmas music. So if you like that, go for it, but no so much Classical.

3.0 out of 5 stars Seems ok
Though it does not contain bright sounding carols, you just might grow to tolerate it. I might not recommend it as typical Christmas carols

2.0 out of 5 stars It's OK
Some of the music is beautiful, but lacks a spirit of the season, even though the music is supposedly Christmas music. Probably better for the hard core classical music fan.
