QUALITY AND QUANTITY COMBINE IN THIS VERY FINE COMPILATION!

This is indeed one of the most tasty group of Christmas songs that I have come across in my many years of listening. It leans toward sacred, but there are tunes such 'White Christmas' sung beautifully by Thomas Hampson and a Brass Choir plays a Medley of songs such as Sleigh ride, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas etc. In addition to the many choirs there are instrumental groups that not only accompany, but solo occasionally.

The Participants Include: Michael George Choirs of Coventry & Litchfield Cathedrals (three selections)-Choir of New College Oxford (seven selections)-Heinrich Schutz Choir(one selection)-Will Glahe's Children's Choir (one selection)- Brown University Chorus with Boston Camerata (one selection)-Concentus Weien (3 selections)-Monteverdi Choir(one selection)-Sumi Jo(three selections)-Dawn Upshaw & Chanticleer (seven selections)-Jose Carreras (one selection)-Placido Domingo (one selection)-Kiri Te Kanawa (one selection). Instrumental groups: London Brass-Boston Camerata-Bolshoi Symphony.

Some of the carols are: 'O come, come Emmanuel'-'Once in 'Royal David's City'-'The Shepherd's Farewell'-'Agnus Dei'-The Holly and the Ivy'-'Panis Angelicus'-'O Holy Night'-'Jauchzet, frohlocket'-'Hallelujah Chorus'. TAKE NOTE THAT THE SELECTIONS ARE LISTED UNDER THE cd PICTURE.

As you can see there is variety and it's all up-scale musical works rendered by first class musicians. How can you go wrong? And it's so good to get away from 'mall music'.

Exquisite collection. I played my first copy of this so often (both on my own and for my programs on WMNR Fine Arts Radio) that I wore it out. It may not be literally the "... 40 Most Beautiful Christmas Classics" , but it's definitely a contender. Don't know that I'd put this at the top of the "If you're only going to have one Christmas CD, choose this..." list but I'd definitely put it in the top ten.

This only gets four stars because it is not wonderfully gorgeous in content but it does provide a nice alternative to the more modern collections that we have on our other CDs. Still, while this suits us well enough, I do wonder if I could have gotten a better album had I looked a little harder. But, it is a keeper.

I could pick a bone or two about some of the carols, namely that some I would prefer with a boy's choir, instead of a heavy baritone. But that would be uncharitable ... Overall, a great collection to listen to year round.

This is very formal. It's beautiful. I didn't recognize some of the songs. Silent night was in German,but very pretty. Little drummer boy brought me to tears. It reminded me of Cathedral and Opera music.

This may be one of the best CD of my Christmas Carols CDs collection. The vocals & orchestra are well balance, the voices are clear & strong, some of the songs are not English, this is good as it gives us a chance to hear carols in other languages ! You won't go wrong by buying it !
