Good mix of the expected ("Silent Night", "O Come All Ye Faithful", etc) and the unexpected (the Vivaldi Gloria, Gabrieli, Schutz). Kudos to the Sony team for uniform clarity & quality of sound, despite source material from 1959 through 1998. Word to the wise: the performance of "O Little Town of Bethlehem" credited to Marilyn Horne is actually by Eileen Farrell from her excellent "Carols for Christmas Eve" release. No disrespect to Ms Horne, who is well represented by two performances with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. If you're truly a classical music fan but don't mind a traditional carol or two, this is an excellent buy.

If you love Christmas as much as I do, you will probably enjoy this album. It features plenty of standard favorites - especially sung by the MoTab, who seem to be a holiday staple. I probably wouldn't pay $17.95 just to hear songs like 'The Little Drummer Boy' of 'We Wish You a Merry Christmas.'

What makes this compillation interesting is the liberal sprinkling of less traditional - or, anyway, less well-known - classical pieces. Vivaldi's 'Gloria', Corelli's 'Christmas Concerto', and the opera 'Hansel and Gretel' all make an appearance. The standout, in my mind, is the ethereally beautiful 'Watt's Cradle Hymn,' which I have never seen or heard anywhere else - that one song alone makes this album worth a listen.

Over and over we played "Die Menge der Engel" - - it is stunningly beautiful! The loftiness of the voices, wonderful.

We loved the boys/children's choruses on many of the other pieces on the album. Duets by Placido Domingo and Luciano Pavorati - - magnifico!

It is a pleasant compilation of traditional favorites and awesome classical pieces that are worth listening to again and again.

I ordered this cd set in hope that I could play beautiful music this holiday season that would remind me of the holy aspect of these most holy of days and this set has delivered. The music is absolutely beautiful and so pleasant to listen to during the day. No screeching about Frosty, no exclamations about Rudolph- just beautiful instrumentals and chorals and some vocals gently reminding me of the reason for the season.

Was looking for some more traditional Christmas music that involved Christ and not this new era of "supposedly" Christmas music that has nothing at all to do with the real meaning of Christmas. I was not disappointed. This is a great set and my family has really enjoyed listening to music about Christ as opposed to music texting during Christmas.

The Ultimate Classical Christmas Album of All Time lives up to its title. The range of music over time and mix of instrumental and vocal provides a harmonious backdrop to wrapping Christmas presents. The volume (length) of music is particularly nice as one hates to end something so good. Whether for those who love classical music, or those who simply want good background, I recommend this CD.

I gave this CD to a family member who loves Christmas music, especially classical music. The vocals and instrumental
selections were varied and well done. It was nice to hear the very familiar songs along with some music not often heard. The entire family enjoyed listening to the CD.

The first CD I received was cracked. I contacted Amazon and they immediately sent me a new one. The cracked one was picked up at my door saving me a trip to the post office, and was returned with free shipping. I was very pleased with the Christmas music,
and very happy with my purchase.
