3.0 out of 5 stars DVD is only partial. November 27, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Five stars for the music. 1 star for misleading the public. I thought I was getting the CD and the Christmas Special DVD together. The DVD that comes with the CD is only 7 songs with no continuity. The Amazon description was misleading. So now I had to pay extra for the CD and will have to buy the DVD. The Amazon description should make it clear that the DVD is NOT the public television Christmas Special.

5.0 out of 5 stars AT LAST !!! November 4, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Andrea Bocelli's first-ever Christmas album was worth the wait! These songs stun me with their beauty and natural charm. Bocelli is in excellent form here and the duets are equally beautiful. The songs on this album are all nothing short of perfect; and Bocelli's ability to perform a wide variety of holiday music impresses me even more. The quality of the sound is excellent and the artwork is very nicely done.

Some of the songs I like the most (although they all are special) include the gorgeous "White Christmas / Bianco Natale;" Andrea sings this with panache and it truly comes from his heart and soul. The piano arrangement works well for this number as well. "Angels We Have Heard on High" is lovely; and Andrea really opens up and delivers this out like the pro he truly is! The operatic qualities of his voice lend themselves so well to "Angels We Have Heard on High;" I love it. In addition, "The Lord's Prayer" is wonderful as The Mormon Tabernacle Choir joins Bocelli; and I really like listening to "Adeste Fidelis" with its lush musical arrangement. "Cantique De Noel" is very pretty also.

Of course, there are songs for children, families and really anyone to enjoy that are not quite so religious. Listen for a sublime version of "The Christmas Song" which Bocelli does with Natalie Cole as a duet; and "Jingle Bells" is performed with the voices of The Muppets! Bocelli sings "Blue Christmas" with such passion I don't think I'll be forgetting it anytime soon and Reba McEntire's vocals enhance "Blue Christmas" all the more.

There are even more songs that showcase wonderful duets. Mary J. Blige sounds great with Bocelli on "What Child Is This;" it's a major highlight of this CD. Katherine Jenkins provides excellent vocals to go with Bocelli's singing on "I Believe.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Memorable Experience November 3, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I'm not a fan of Christmas music. In general, I even avoid listening to it. However, when I saw this CD by Bocelli was coming out, I could not help but getting it. What a treat! Yes, most of the songs are the same songs you have heard a thousand times. But I have to say that Bocelli and Foster bring an entirely different perspective to each of them, bring each song to a new dimension. Particularly nice are all of the duets on the CD, plus "White Christmas". There is one song, however, that will be remembered for a long time on this CD, "The Lord's Prayer", with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, which, regardless of your religious beliefs or lack of them, will bring tears to people who enjoy true music. An instant classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING November 4, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Just listened to this cd on the way to work. I am only four songs into it and it is undoubtedly the most amazing cd I have heard ! (I kept hitting the repeat button just to hear songs over and over....might explain why I only got through four.) "The Lord's Prayer" will bring tears to your eyes. Totally uplifting. I will be buying more as gifts. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this cd as it will be a must have item for the holidays.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely beautiful! November 28, 2009
By Bobbi
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This new Andrea Bocelli Christmas CD & DVD are outstanding. Just the most beautiful music combined with some fun songs with children and the Muppets. The duets
with Reba, Natalie, Katherine and Mary are also beautiful. Most highly recommended for everyone. Andrea Bocelli has an amazing voice. He sings with such feeling and beauty. The duet with Katherine, "I Believe" is not only beautiful but touches your heart.

1.0 out of 5 stars Andrea Bocelli My Christmas Deluxe Edition January 17, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Very dissapointed in this product. The DVD only has 7 songs, not the 15 songs on the My Christmas DVD. I thought I was getting a Deluxe Edition and only got half the the DVD. Deluxe Edition is a scam. Buy the CD and DVD Separately.

5.0 out of 5 stars A spoonful of Bocelli makes the medicine go down November 5, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I generally make a point of avoiding Christmas CD's because the simplicity of most of these melodies makes it virtually impossible to breathe new life into them and over the years they have lost their appeal. After listening to "My Christmas" I realized I had seriously underestimated Bocelli's ability to accomplish the impossible. His renderings of these holiday favorites span an impressive vocal range and coupled with Foster's updated and lush arrangements make them irresistible.

The highlights for me are "Angels we have heard on high" which draws me back time and again. In the duets, the awesome new arrangement of "What child is this" with Ms. Bilge is gorgeous. He has the ability to blend his voice beautifully with whom ever he sings with. His delivery is straightforward and strong with subtle variations while his partners' voices dance around him. He even managed to inflect a little C&W in "Blue Christmas", a great duet with Reba, and that can't have been easy. And hearing him sing with Natalie Cole I was hit with a wave of nostalgia as I'm a huge fan of her father. Listening to Bocelli in many of these songs made me remember the great crooners and balladeers I always enjoyed.

The childhood favorites are amazinginly successful as well! "Jingle Bells" with the muppets is too cute for words and "Santa Claus is coming to town" is almost palatable.

"Oh Tannebaum" is another favorite. I can barely eek out a language and a half and he sounds comfortable with four or five so he gets major points with that one. The "Our Father" and other solos are quite beautiful as well although I really would have prefered the "Oh holy night" in english. "God bless us everyone" is a very fitting ending to a totally enjoyable CD.

If you take your Christmas medicine in small doses, this is the CD for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best holiday collection I have
This helps to get me in the holiday spirit. I especially appreciate Bocelli's classical music recordings rather than his focus on romantic standards.
