This review is from: A Christmas Carol (MP3 Music)As I sat in the theater watching this movie, I knew right from the opening credits that I had to have this soundtrack. This is Alan Silvestri at his best, captivating audiences with lush orchestrations and unique arrangements. The soundtrack includes traditional songs such as "Hark, the Herald Angels Sing," "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen," "Deck the Halls," even a brief visit to Bach's version of "Ave Maria." Of course, it also includes plenty of original material, and the traditional carols are performed in such a way that it is as if you are hearing them for the first time.
However, easily half of the soundtrack is more sinister in nature, including music from scenes in the movie such as "Marley's Ghost Visits Scrooge" and "The Carriage Chase." I typically skip these tracks when listening, as I do not find them entertaining or uplifting.
Perhaps the best track on this soundtrack is Andrea Bocelli's performance of "God Bless Us Everyone," which is short but completely embodies the spirit of this movie. I adore Andrea's voice, and this song leaves plenty of room for him to showcase his talent, from his crystal clear tone to his high belt. The joy and passion in this song are captivating and inspiring, and truly convey the awe and wonder of the film.

Which tracks are the vocal songs on? I fell in love with those while watching the movie, and I want them for my holiday collection. I'm trying to decide whether to buy the whole album or only those tracks.
