To begin: I LOVE Michael McDonald. His "Motown" album is one of my favorites. And I love the Wexford Carol. It's a beautiful tune, and I have several versions of it, my favorites being by Celtic instrumentalists. So this should have been a gift. But it sounds like Mike is in sore need of some milk of magnesia, and what comes out is a strained, painful rendition of this marvelous tune. Makes me sad--- I was hoping a free Michael McDonald Christmas song would be part of my holiday rotation. Instead, it rotated right off the computer. I still love him, but just not this offering, free or not. Sad. Fortunately, there is so much good Christmas music out there that we needn't despair. Instead, I'll listen to Bruce Cockburn's "Christmas" in its entirety. Brilliant. Go get it, even if it's not free. Merry Christmas to all!

I don't object to the way Michael McDonald's voice has matured. I think on some songs he still sounds very good. But I have to admit, I don't like the way he does THIS song. His voice doesn't seem to be able to stand up to the arrangement. It's not trash, but it's not what I have come to expect from him.

I Like his mellow enchanting sound better than some ear splitting zigzaging noise made by some artist. Thank you. Merry Christmas

After reading some negative reviews of this song, I wasn't expecting much. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it's actually pretty good. Michael MacDonald's voice isn't the same as it used to be, but that doesn't make it bad. The song has a mature, realistic feel. If you're looking for a sweet young voice, there are lots of those out there. This is a nice change and a good addition to give my Christmas music collection some enjoyable variety.

I've always liked Michael McDonald, and was looking forward to his version of this seldom-heard old carol. I listened to the sample twice, and am not going to give this space on my player, even free. Michale sounds like he's in pain - strained doesn't begin to describe it - and I couldn't understand a word. Sad.

after listening to some of the other xmas tracks offered by amazon this season, this is both way more interesting and complex sounding than the others and deeply refreshing as a xmas track.

I don't know who this guy is, like some many of the other reviewers, but I like this track anyway.

I purchased this only after hearing him sing this live in December 2013. You can't go wrong if you enjoy well honored Christmas carols sung as they were meant to be.
