Editorial Reviews

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Happy Birthday, Jesus and other selections January 28, 2006
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Happy Birthday Jesus January 28, 2006
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the best Christmas albums on the market November 24, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Christmas Album December 21, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good CD! December 11, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.
