I'll start by saying that I have only recently become acquainted with the music of Keith and Kristyn Getty. They gave a concert at my church last week (McLean Bible Church, Vienna, VA) and I had purchased this CD (along with two of their other CDs) before the concert.

I have probably close to 100 Christmas CDs, collected over several years, and this CD is the one we have been playing almost exclusively this Christmas. Where to start? All of the songs are lovely, and the various reels that are included in some of them make them so beautifully Irish. I especially love "An Irish Christmas Blessing", so perfect in its simplicity, yet with a message of comfort and hope in Christ. I love the hymn "Joy has Dawned", and "Savior of Our Fallen Race" (dedicated to Carl "Chip" Stam, whose family tree includes the Christian martyrs John and Betty Stam) is based on a 6th century Latin carol. Then there is the sweet "Jesus, Joy of the Highest Heaven", written for children, with a simple message of the gospel. And I cannot forget to mention the compelling "How Suddenly a Baby Cries" (with the Narnian reel). I especially love this song for its mention of Anna and Simeon, faithful servants who had longed and watched for the coming of their Redeemer for so many years, and whom God honored by allowing them to see the infant Savior before their days on earth came to an end. Can you imagine what it will be like to see these two saints in heaven one day and to hear their stories?

This Christmas CD will undoubtedly remain one of my favorites for years to come. I am so thankful that the Gettys have dedicated themselves to writing hymns for our time. Each and every song here is memorable and speaks to the heart, and Jesus Christ is glorified through the lyrics and melodies.

I've been a fan of Keith and Kristyn's music for a while now and didn't realize until attending one of their concerts last weekend that they were releasing a Christmas album this year. I snatched it up almost as soon as it came out and, though it's a bit early for Christmas music, I will be getting a head start this year!

The Getty's take several holiday standards and blend them with some fabulous Irish tunes; the combination brings a whole new energy to these well-known Christmas classics. They also introduce several new songs (like the hauntingly beautiful "Magnificat") to the Christmas repertoire.

A spectacular release. This is one album you will definitely want to pick up early this Christmas season!

A wonderful collection of songs. Some are very well known; others a bit more obscure. If you like Christmas music there is a wealth of it here.

Kristyn Getty's voice is something special. Her singing is pure and uncluttered. She does throw in some ear candy, but it is done within the Irish style so it is not distracting. A friend of mine, on first hearing a track, compared her to Allison Kraus. The arrangements of the songs are interesting, with lots of little surprises. The use of open chords and dissonance coupled with a welcome sparseness allowed the arrangements to support the melody, lending interest without claiming precedence.

The various musicians who contributed to this are first rate. The word that comes to mind is clean. Most every note for all instruments is exactly where it needed to be. The fiddle players deserve special notice. The piano work on the slower numbers is restrained and classy, not the least bit muddy or overdone. The background vocals also were very clean, especially considering the close harmonies on some of the arrangements. No pitch problems, and it sounded live rather than corrected (so another credit to the engineering team).

This is the best recording I've heard in a long time. Kudos to the engineering and production team. Capturing the runs and trills of the fiddle this cleanly, as well as the mix among the various instruments, made the "busy-ness" of the faster songs a pleasure to listen to. The piano recording, especially on the slower songs, is very musical, well balanced in tone and with none of the harshness that sometimes accrues to that instrument. Some may not like the closeness of the miking on the piano, but I love being able to hear the peddle work on the dampers.

Buy this album. You won't be disappointed.

If one of your mottos is Keep Christ in Christmas, I have a CD for you with beautiful instrumentals and sterling solo vocals. There are rousing Irish renditions of favorite carols along side charming and beautiful original music. The Children's Carol is a special favorite of mine. I played this CD in my car throughout the holidays and bought two additional copies to give as gifts.

It is soothing praise worship for any season, but also for the Christmas season of course. I recommend it to anyone.

This is now one of my favorite Christmas albums. I love the variety of songs and themes. It is so nice that it does not sound like every other Christmas album I own. Also the theology is flawless. Highly recommend.
