Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Between 1957 and 1968, Ray Conniff had 28 albums in the American Top 40. He started out at Columbia Records as their home arranger, backing artists such as Rosemary Clooney, Johnny Mathis, and Johnnie Ray, with his orchestra and was eventually offered the chance to do his own record. We Wish You a Merry Christmas is packed with traditional holiday tunes that Conniff and his (25) Singers wove into a series of medleys. This album has a retro studio sound, which, upon listening, may conjure up images of Lawrence Welk singers strolling the stage, dressed in matching holiday garb. Sometimes melodramatic ("Ring Christmas Bells"), other times, bright and exuberant ("Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!"), it's good, clean fun for the whole family and a solid addition to any Christmas catalog. --Renata Sadunas

5.0 out of 5 stars A Happy Zippy Christmas Album September 24, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Ray Conniff and the Conniff singers always remind me of Christmas, probably since I cannot remember a Christmas without hearing the Conniff singers version of famous Christmas carols. Growing up, my parents listened to this album, along with HERE WE COME A CAROLING. My siblings and I used to make fun of it, but I secretly enjoyed it since I have purchased the LP, then the cassette, and finally the CD. I usually listen to it when I need to get in the Christmas mood. The CD contains the snippy renditions of popular Christmas carols that is part of the Ray Conniff style. It also has an original song "Count Your Blessings Instead of Sheep" and an interesting rendition of the Carol of the Bells. Though it is a mid-priced compact disk, it has full price joy and no doubt, will connect with memories of Christmases past and Christmases yet to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you Amazon! December 11, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Ray Conniff's "We Wish You A Merry Christmas" holds so many precious memories for my family and me. We first got the album Christmas of 1965. I had just turned 10. It was not until I heard this album did I fully appreciate Christmas Carols. Ray Conniff has a wonderful gift for touching the harts of both young and old, for my grandparents enjoyed Conniff's Christmas music as well. My father often said that that so much of Christmas is Conniff's Christmas music. In those days we had a "mono" phonograph". By the time we got a stereo, the album was not available. For over 20 years I have been searching for this album. With the advent of CD's, I was hopeful that I would find it reproduced on CD. In Canada, this CD or any Christmas CD by Conniff is not available. So I checked Amazon.com. Lo and behol, there is was. The delivery was prompt, and I am listening to it as I write this. Again, a huge thank you, Amazon!! P.S. I ordered 2--one for Dad for Christmas and one for me!

I was thrilled to find this on cd, the vinyl album I'd had for many years is all scratched & the few cassette versions I had tucked away were always gone whenever I went to get them out for holiday listening (someone in my family 'borrowed' them). In my opinion, this yuletide collection ranks right up there with the Sing Along With Mitch cd! Both bring back memories of fun & laughter during the entire month of December. This is a must-have cd to add to your Christmas music collection. Very highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'Swonderful!!!! April 20, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is one of those albums that epitomizes the contemporary Christmas spirit. My mother bought this when it first came out (with me as a tiny tot) back in the 60's. Now my wife and children are enjoying it every bit as much here in the 21st century. Ray Conniff put together such a diverse collection of Christmas music that it's sure to please everyone. From the 15th century's religious 'The First Noel' to the more modern 'Little Drummer Boy' to the rollicking, always fun 'Deck The Halls,' this CD covers it all! My personal favorite on this collection is 'Ring Christmas Bells,' a take of 'Carol of the Bells.' The way the male and female singers play off each other (and the typical '60's stereo separation of men and women's voices), along with the full, Phil Spector-like orchestration gives this CD a rich sound. Above all, it just SOUNDS like Christmas! There really is not a bad cut on the album. If you have read my reviews of other Christmas music, you know that I am a big fan of traditional Christmas music done in a traditional way. So why such a rave review on a contemporary album? You gotta have SOMETHING to sing along with. This is great for family get togethers, party's, decorating the tree, whatever you feel an upbeat Christmas album is suited for. For a lively collection of Christmas music, with a lot of variety, this album cannot be beat!

5.0 out of 5 stars Touches the heart January 19, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This is a true classic and a beautiful one. You just can't beat Ray Conniff and his singers for joyful, rich Christmas music. The spirit of these performances are magical and endearing. The upbeat numbers are Christmas cheer to the highest degree and the sacred songs are done so beautifully. The singers do an outstanding and haunting job. The final medley containing "The First Noel" is just gorgeous and really showcases the beauty of their voices. Conniff's version of "The Little Drummer Boy" continues to be the greatest one I've ever heard.
When I hear this album it takes me back to the Christmases of my childhood. I can see the beautifully decorated doors and windows covered in shiny paper and bows, and the strings of large Christmas bulbs with their warm, colorful glow illuminating the winter night. Make some memories with Ray Conniff's music and add this superb Christmas CD to your collection. It's guaranteed to be a favorite.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Christmas Tradition November 27, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Around our house Christmas means lots of holiday cookies, egg nog and the seasonal music of Ray Conniff. I have a mint condition copy of the original vinyl LP I've had for twenty years and along with his other Christmas albums it makes a perfect holiday cassette. Just like Christmas with Conniff, We Wish You a Merry Christmas is heavy on secular music and light on the religious music. The biggest difference is that this time out Conniff relied more on medleys than individual songs to marvelous effect.
Conniff began his career in the late Thirties performing with various big bands (including the likes of Harry James and Artie Shaw). His biggest commercial success was the pop Top Ten "Somewhere, My Love" (from the film Dr. Zhivago) in 1966. But for most Baby Boomers he's probably best known for his wonderful Christmas albums. There's nothing trendy about this music, which accounts for the timeless quality. I grew up listening to my dad play this music, and now my kids are listening to it. (I suspect my grandkids will too.) HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
