5.0 out of 5 stars Childhood Memories December 17, 2001
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album has been played in my house at Christmas since I was little. As soon as the Christmas tree went up and we began to put up the lights, I would hear Sergio's voice and know Christmas was truly here! The album my mother has is scratched and I was so glad to find this on cd. Now I can play this wonderful music in my own home for my family. Sergio's voice is beautiful. For anyone that loves a classic Christmas collection...this is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars The "Ave Maria" - One of the most beautiful ever! December 12, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My mother loved this album, and Christmas just wasn't Christmas without Sergio! The "Panis Angelicus" and "Ave Maria" alone are worth the price of the CD - I don't know that I have ever heard either of them more beautifully sung. My mother died before this came out on CD - and the vinyl was gone years ago. We would occasionally check it out of the library to listen, even though it wasn't Christmas. She would have loved having this on CD. I bought one for my sister and one for myself. We can't bear to listen to it just yet - maybe next year - but it is a treasure. Buon Natale!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Truly an all time classic for Christmas music fans November 18, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I remember this album on vinyl as a child and have always wanted to find it on CD. It brings back many fond memories of my mom. This record was always played prior to the start of the Christmas season while she made fruitcake. The vinyl album has seen better days and I'm truly thankful that it's now on CD- and so is mom! Sergio's voice is amazing and is similar to Pavoritti. Enjoy it this holiday season!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sergio Franchi makes Christmas wonderful May 1, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I've had the original record for over 30 years, and always play it at Christmas. My mother, a first generation Italian, loved it too. It always made her happy, because it includes songs her mother sang to her as a little girl. I'm glad to see it is still available. A must addititon to any collection.

This is a "must have" Christmas album. I bought it for my mom this year and we listened to it over and over. I highly recommend adding it to your holiday collection. Sergio's voice is just beautiful.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Heart of Christmas December 13, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is seldom heard Italian Christmas music at its best. Sergio Franchi is a classically trained tenor who projects warmth and feeling into every song. I listened to this album on vinyl records every Christmas as a child and it is a family classic no household should be without, especially if you love Italian music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Childhood Memories March 22, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love this cd/album. It was a record album when I was growing up and I didn't appreciate it. Now, I appreciate Sergio Franchi's talent and it brings me back to Christmas as a child. I think anyone can enjoy this Christmas CD. It is timeless.
