By Lawrance Bernabo HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on November 23, 2003
Format: Audio CD
The idea that Amy Grant could put out a great Christmas album is hardly surprising, but the fact that she had a hand in writing four of the songs on this classic 1983 collection should raise some eyebrows. The scope of "A Christmas Album" is laid out in the first three tracks: "Tennessee Christmas," the first of the songs co-written by Grant, the traditional Mendelssohn hymn "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing," and a German carol "Preiset Dem König!" This album was released when Grant was pretty much at her height as a contemporary Christian singer, having won a Grammy for gospel singing the previous year, and that may well explain this rather ambitious album. But you would have to believe that Grant was going to be able to record anything she wants, which makes the eleven tracks she selected all the more interesting.
The other original songs are "Christmas Hymn," "Love Has Come," and "Heirlooms," which blend in just as well with the contemporary Christmas classics "Sleigh Ride" and "The Christmas Song." But the definitive song on this Christmas album is the last track, when Grant pulls out all the stops for an impressive medley of "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God" and "Angels We Have Heard on High," supported by the Hollywood Presbyterian Choir. Having more sedate Christmas songs preceding this finale only makes it a more powerful conclusion to the album. I did a quick check through my Christmas albums and Amy Grant's "A Christmas Album" has more original songs, songs that I have never heard, or songs that do not appear on any other holiday, of any holiday album that I have. If you have not picked up this Christmas album in the twenty years since it was first released, then now would be a good time to add this classic to your music library.

I grew up listening to this album and I never get tired of it year after year. It's always the first one I play when Christmastime rolls around.

I have enjoyed this album since its arrival in 1983. It seems to capture a highlight in Grant's career--excellent song choices, and a point where her voice was in many ways at its peak. There are a few moments, let's be frank, where Grant's untrained vocal range is stretched to its limits by this challenging material ("Love Has Come," "Angels We Have Heard on High," and "Christmas Hymn") . Still, her voice from this time has a clarity and earnestness that carries the album with great energy, and even more, great fun that creeps into even the most solemn songs. The "yoo-hoo!" on "Sleigh Ride," while arguably a bit goofy and over the top, always brings a smile to my face. And I love the power of the "Emmanuel" and "Little Town" medley, as well as the innocent torchiness that she displays on "Chestnuts." Finally, the orchestrations and instrumentation are just right. Great blending of new and traditional material, a great performance by Amy, and a little magic make this album a wonderful holiday perennial. I believe it is still the best of her three Christmas collections! I have owned the LP and the cassette, and now I plan to get the CD as well. And that by itself speaks volumes to how much I have enjoyed "A Christmas Album."

Everyone has their all-time favorite Christmas discs and this is in the top few around our house, and has been since its release on vinyl. Though I'm hardly in Ms. Grant's target demographic (as a 51-year-old male), I've followed her music since she was a teen and this in my opinion is one of her finest and most substantial efforts -- better, I feel, than "Home for Christmas," her second Christmas disc which seems belabored and pretentious by comparison. The winsome "Tennessee Christmas" with husband Gary Chapman is as homey as smoke up the chimney, while her interpretations and adaptations of traditional numbers are fresh and inspiring. Her Christian faith shines through while not obscuring the fun and frivolity of secular numbers like "Sleigh Ride." A suggestion: use this fine disc as a warmup and then settle in for a transcendant experience with Kathy Mattea's "Good News," a double helping of deeply-satisfying seasonal soul food.
