5.0 out of 5 stars Why Is This One So Little Known? November 26, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I have over a hundred Christmas CDs and I look forward every year to listening to this one.
Special recognition for the Liza and Alan Cummings selection and one of the most beautiful White Christmas arrangements I've ever heard by Audra McDonald.
It's one full hour of the best voices on (and off) Broadway.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite Christmas CD December 3, 2005
By Iagan
Format:Audio CD
This is by far my favorite Christmas CD. The singing and arrangements are lovely, and the mix of songs is wonderful. Standouts (on an album of standouts) include Alan Cumming and Liza Minnelli having fun with "Baby It's Cold Outside," a version of "Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy" that is a haunting prayer for our times, and a beautiful and sad version of "I'll be Home for Christmas."

If you're looking for a Christmas album to entertain children, this probably isn't it. No Frosty or Rudolph here, and the arrangements have an adult contemporary feel. But if you are looking for something to help you unwind after the kids have gone to bed, this CD is like a warm fire on a winter's night.

5.0 out of 5 stars A treasure... May 12, 2013
Format:Audio CD
I adore everything on this CD, if I played only one of my Xmas CD's, this would be it! Liz Callaway & Ann Hampton Callaway are sublime on "O Holy Night" but my ultimate fave is Christine Ebersole on "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas". I bought the CD SPECIFICALLY to have it! Years ago she sang it on a short-lived sit-com "The Cavanaughs" & I was stunned at her incredible voice. I'd been a fan when she was on SNL but had no idea of her vocal talent. I have 2 of her other CD's & I totally agree with the review by "NanceThought" below.

4.0 out of 5 stars Peace on Earth for you and me. November 8, 2007
Format:Audio CD
This CD features Broadway stars singing Christmas songs. They all sing great, not surprisingly. Most songs aren't done in a very swinging style, but they are enjoyable in an easy listening kind of way.
