I became an instant fan when I saw The Canadian Tenors perform in my community. They are all individually incredibly talented and when they sing together it's amazing. The arrangements on old favorites on this CD like "O Holy Night" and "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" are very different (they arranged all the songs) and may not appeal to everyone. But there are some wonderful new songs like "The Perfect Gift" and "Wintersong" which will become your new holiday favorites. If you're looking for another holiday CD with very traditional arrangements this CD isn't for you. But, if you want something slightly different, enjoy beautiful music and great voices, you will definitely want to add this CD to your holiday music collection.

They have wonderful harmony and vocal skills. I have seen them in concert and I highly recomend them to all my friends. Not only do they sing but they can play other musical insturments. Check out thier youtube videos if you are unsure of what you are getting! They also have helped raise a million dollars for the city of Bulembu. The city once was a mining town but the mining industry left the town. Since then the town has became devastated with AIDS. They are stilling working for this cause!Yes they are new to the States but they came through my little home town in Kansas and they put on an amazing performance.

AWSOME CD ! ! ! These guys are fantastic to listen to! Unbelieveable blend of trained voices (not to mention the good looks)of four (4) young men. I will purchase all their CDs as soon as they hit the "stand".

I bought this Christmas album simply on the strength of being a fan. After listening to the album repeatedly, my opinion has not changed except I love it more now than the first time I heard it. The traditional Christmas songs are really fine, but the gems of this album are the lesser known, even non-traditional Christmas songs included. The harmonies are extraordinary, the musical arrangements are splendid (thank goodness they are not the same tired old renditions), and the album as a whole has its own special quality. Instead of the jingle-tingle-ringle that too often accompanies holiday music, this album has a way of wrapping around you like a warm blanket as one sits in front of a roaring fire on a cold night with warm hot chocolate. Yes! It's even comforting, soothing, and touched the depths of me that is too often too jaded after all the commercialization of the season. Thanks to all who contributed to this album. It has become one of my favorites and i am buying it for family members and friends for Christmas -- but buying it early so they can enjoy it!!!

Many have compared the Canadian Tenors with Il Divo. The comparison is very easy to make. 4 powerful singers who sing pseudo-opera (popera) music while milking the pop element of their music with lush arrangements. Music is a question of personal taste, so it seems silly to compare the two groups. Both are talented and have some stunning tracks which showcase their voices. I can only state my preference in this review.

The Il Divo Christmas CD did not live up to my expectations. It was overproduced and oversung and had some bizarre song choices (Somewhere over the Rainbow?). It is, in my opinion, their worst effort to date. The Canadian Tenors do not make these same mistakes with this CD. They have an interesting yet relevant mix of songs. (even the previously-released "Hallelujah" and "The Prayer" fit in here). Classics (O Holy Night, God Rest ye Merry Gentlemen, Silent Night) mixed with interesting unique songs (Huron Carol, Wintersong, etc) make this CD an amazing listening experience. Their voices are soft and gentle when need be, and powerful and convincing when needed.The arrangements are unique and memorable. So, for me, this CD is much better than Il Divo's holiday CD.

I hope you enjoy this CD during the holiday season! I will listen to certain tracks all year long. It is stunningly beautiful. "Wintersong" with Sarah Maclachlan is an ethereal, melancholic song that transports you to another world. It is my favorite track of the CD, but for me, there is not one single dud. I look forward to other releases by The Canadian Tenors!

I LOVE this CD!!! The Canadian Tenors have absolutely incredible voices! Their rendition of Hallelujah is the best that I have heard. I saw them sing once on Oprah, and Celine Dion surprised them and sang Hallelujah with them, and it was awesome, but as wonderful as Celine's voice is, I must say that they do a fantastic job of singing this particular song on their own! All of the songs on this CD are great. I have their other CD, which is simply called 'Canadian Tenors,' and it's one of my favorite CDs ever! I would buy these guys' CDs all day long if they had more available. Yes, I HIGHLY recommend this CD and any other CDs by the Canadian Tenors!!!!

I saw the Canadian Tenors on one of the network morning shows before Christmas last year and was very impressed with their voices and sound. I put their Christmas CD on my Amazon wish list, but didn't buy it till this year.

There are two tracks, Huron Carol and Instrument of Peace, that I was unfamiliar with but are very nice. The more traditional Christmas songs are beautifully done and add so much to the holiday atmosphere in our home. I'm really glad we added this to our collection.
