I just purchased and listened to Christmas from the Heart by David Archuleta and I am overwhelmed with the emotion I feel. David brings out the true meaning of these classic Christmas Carols and makes you feel every note of every song. I had tears in my eyes listening.This is sure to be a classic Christmas album and a standard in my house for sure! From Joy to the world to I'll be home for Christmas to Pat-a-Pan and the spanish Riu Riu Chiu to the beautiful Ave Maria and to the Original New classic Melodies of Christmas penned by David every single song on this album is pure joy to listen to. this is the perfect Christmas Eve album to share with family and friends, but do your self a favor and take time to just sit and listen alone with not TV ,no computer no distractons just you and David and the miracle of Christmas!

I am almost afraid to write this review for fear it will sound like the biggest hype of all hypes. But honestly I have never ever heard anything more gorgeous than David's collection of Christmas songs here. I do not care what religion you are, don't even think about not buying this album. Seriously, you do not have to be a Christian, to love this music. It is a true masterpiece. And I do not say that lightly. David has managed in the most uncanny way to get inside each and every song and bring out the real Love that underscores them. I have had tears and chills throughout listening to it. His voice is an exquisite instrument and that combined with his ability to give new meaning to these songs, making each one almost like you have never heard it before, is quite an achievement. This is a word of mouth album. As the word spreads, I think it is going to explode onto the charts as one of the greatest Christmas albums of all time. I think most of us love these songs, especially at this time of the year. But this album is something else. It truly took me by surprise. It's almost like he showed me them as if I had never heard them before. David brings an energy here combined with his immense interpretive powers that transcends religions and genres. This music inspired me to write this review. It inspired me, also, to wish each and every one of you the merriest of Christmases and the happiest of New Years. Let's put it this way, I am now centered in the Christmas spirit. And it's not even Halloween yet. Given what is going on in our country, and all the hatred spewing and terrifying things we read about our economy and global warming and the terrible split between the right and the left, that is saying something. So again, Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!!! With heartfelt gratitude to you, David Archuleta.

Accomplished and Ambitious? You betcha! Songs in English, Latin, Spanish and French, no less. Fearless in depth and breadth of choices. Orchestras, choirs, slow rhythms, fast tempos and in-between. At the core of every song, arising with rich, gorgeous clarity and crisp, sharp definition out of the surrounding music is David Archuleta's velvety, smoky tenor.

Every song speaks volumes. My top songs (and they change priority every time I listen):

What Child Is This - Pure genius. Genuine, flowing seemingly from the center of Mr. Archuleta's heart and faith. "This, this, is Christ the King...Whom shepherds guard and angels sing." Vulnerable. Authentic. Tender. STUNNING. And then there are the vocals, the voice, the talent -- but those are secondary to the purity and beauty of the message he delivers.

Ave Maria - This prayer on the album is a rare and unexpected gift. The Infinite. God. Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God. Life. Love. To be among Angels. His vocalization of "Amen" is a tsunami of faith. A live performance could level mountains, make angels faint and demon weep.

O Holy Night - Soaring into the heavens and beyond. Massive love. The Universal One. That last verse is simply gorgeous: "Noel, Noel...O night, O night divine. Noel, Noel, O night, O night divine."

And, then, there is Pat-A-Pan. Mysterious. Edgy. A march. "Tu-re-lu-re-lu, pat-a-pat-a-pan." David's voice giving us the sound of the drum, pat-a-pan, and the fife (small flute), tu-re-lu-re-lu, that the shepherds played to celebrate the birth of Jesus. I suspect reams will be written about this song, especially the last sixty seconds.

The ceiling of the Sistine Chapel flashes through my mind when I hear the magnificent vocals and melodic interpretations with this collection of songs. These are songs that touch ones soul.

I love the whole thing -- every song is gorgeous. My favorites are O Holy Night, Ave Maria & What Child Is This. Those gave me chills. I love those songs every Christmas, but these are the best versions I've heard. I was amazed at how well he sang in 4 languages! It seems like there is nothing this guy can't sing.

Christmas From the Heart is breathtaking! You can definitely feel David's heart with each note he sings. The soaring vocals are exhilarating, but it's in those subtle nuances and quiet notes that will tug at your heart. David caresses each note and takes you on this spiritual journey with him. Even if David has never been your cup of tea, you should definitely give this album a listen. I'll bet you come away with a new appreciation for David and his music.
