Product Description

cd

Amazon.com

A fine selection of traditional carols mixed with contemporary takes on the birth of the Christ child, Christmas at the Brooklyn Tabernacle is a festive and joyful celebration of the season. True to their roots, the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir pays homage to their ethnic diversity by including a variety of styles: the funky Caribbean influenced "First Day of the Son," the soulful R&B groove of "They Followed His Star," and the exquisitely executed classicism of "Carol of the Bells." Also included are the popular "Happy Birthday Jesus," performed by the children's choir division, and a magnificently arranged rendition of director Carol Cymbala's "You Shall Call His Name Jesus." Featured soloists include the well-loved voices of Charles Allen, Susan Cymbala, and Karen Melendez. --Paige La Grone

My wife and I had been searching for the song we heard on K-Love called "Happy Birthday, Jesus". It's sung by a little girl (beginning and end) with a backing choir in the main part of the selection. After enough Googling, we finally found it on this CD.

Neither of us had even heard of the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir. Mormon? Yes. Brooklyn? No. The other selections on the CD are enjoyable and soulful. Still, our favorite is "Happy Birthday, Jesus" with the little girl. Sure, some say it's sappy and most so-called "progressives" and "intellectuals" would write it off as emotional fluff. Fine, so be it. Everyone's entitled to an opinion. I however prefer to focus on the reason for the CHRISTmas season, and that sweet, innocent little girl in "Happy Birthday, Jesus" can make even a big, rough old guy like me tear up when I hear it.

I ordered this CD and was not disappointed. Brooklyn Tabernacle always has high quality Christian music...but I ordered this CD for the song Happy Birthday Jesus. A very touching tribute to Jesus in honor of his birthday, and IT IS ALL SUNG BY CHILDREN!!!

In the midst of the hustle and bustle, one child's voice says it all....Happy Birthday Jesus!!! You must hear this one song...it is a great tribute.

This is an album that should definitely be a part of a Christmas collection. The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir has done on this album what they do best - they make music come alive. This Christmas album is no exception. The choir is magnificent, and the music is beautifully orchestrated. The familiar carols are done with the energetic style of the choir without losing their integrity. The original works by Carol Cymbala are well worth listening to - she is one of the most gifted choral songwriters in gospel music. I strongly recommend this Christmas album, and wouldn't be surprised if it becomes a favorite.

The transition between the first two tracks speaks volumes about the quality of the engineering and production of this CD. In fact, the placement of the tracks on the album add to the overall experience of the this Christmas album.

That being said, I will admit that the BTC has done better, but there is little to complain about with this CD; it achieves its purpose--it glorifies God and uplifts your spirit!

Of course, there are complaints about "Happy Birthday, Jesus." How can this be? Oh, how cute! Yes, I purchased this CD primarily for this track. Despite the age of this CD (now over ten years), this single track remains on airplay.

This CD is well worth the few dollars that are required. Buy it...you won't be disappointed!

When my wife and I look for music that inspires, uplifts, and just plain puts you in the presence of the Father we look no further than the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir. Ever since we were introduced to them years ago we have been steady consumers of their musical media both DVD, Video, and CD's. Each one has touched us in amazing ways. Christmas at the Brooklyn Tabernacle was no different. Whether it is Christmas time or anytime of the year this music is timeless. Our special tradition to begin the Christmas season is to have music playing in our home to set the true atmosphere for the season. Their rendition of Happy Birthday Jesus puts it all into perspective. You will not be disappointed. Start your own Brooklyn Tabernacle collection today with this cd!

This is nice Christmas CD. The purchase supports the efforts of the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir which is a worthy effort indeed. Most of the songs are not my favorite style- a little too contemp for my personal tastes but the Golden Gem on here for me is the "Happy Birthday Jesus" Song. I have heard a few good renditions- all using young children's voices, but this is the best- the GOLD STANDARD for sweetness and innocence in praise! It alone was worth the price of the CD. I play it on repeat over and over- I just love it! It ministers great peace and recalls the true meaning to the Christmas season.
Thank You.

I bought this CD for the song "Happy Birthday, Jesus" which is a song I had heard on the radio and really like. I'm not a gospel music fan so I didn't think I'd like the rest of the album. When I finally listened to it, I was pleasantly surprised. Most of the songs were songs I had never heard of but they were good songs sung by good singers. There was none of that singing all over the place or "vocal gymnastics" which is what I don't like about gospel music. They also do a medley of Christmas songs I know which was nice. I enjoyed the music on this CD and if you buy it, hopefully you will too.
