Let me start by saying that I'm a traditionalist about Christmas music. I usually like the older songs best, and whatever the song, I tend to prefer the arrangement and artist whose version I heard first, especially if it's a song I've known since childhood. Yes, you can call me a stick in the mud.

So honestly I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I saw Amazon's gift to us this season of Sixpence None The Richer's rendition of "Angels We Have Heard On High." I love the group and know its background, so I knew the performance would be heartfelt. But what would Sixpence NTR do with (to?) one of my favorite carols?

Treat it with respect and love -- and in the process create a timeless, yet modern take on one of the most beautiful songs of the season. The instrumental leadoff, coupled with the purity of the vocals and instrumentation throughout, is joyful. Now, I still love the more staid "traditional" arrangement of this song, but at the same time I can picture people sitting around a campfire or a family tree, singing "Angels We Have Heard On High" with the simple grace this newer Sixpence arrangement brings.

This version of the song has definitely made the cut for our annual family tree-trimming playlist. I predict that adults and kids alike will be singing along ... which after all is the strongest endorsement of a carol.

What a pleasant surprise! Now THIS is what I call Christmas music. After I downloaded it and heard it in its full quality I was absolutely blown away!

This rendition of 'Angels We Have Heard On High' is BY FAR the best I've ever heard, and 'Sixpence...' has such a peaceful character to their music I can't think of any other group that could pull this off so well...its fresh and original... with today's style of modern pop/rock...I could listen to this year round...don't pass this early present up!

Sixpence none the Richer does an excellent job on the classic song. To have it as a free MP3 download was amazing to me. Beautifully done.

I usually enjoy almost anything by Sixpence, and here again, is an very nice song. However, it's a Christmas song, and it doesn't have the "traditional" feel that I like. Just a personal preference - just listen to the preview before you buy.
