If you're already stocked up on your favorite Christmas carols but are looking for a nice solid anthology of sacred music, this one certainly has a lot of enjoyment to offer. True, a little more thought could have gone into this themed compilation. What does the Largo from Handel's opera Serse, featuring countertenor Andreas Scholl (his name consistently misspelled on the CD, by the way), have to do with the Yuletide season? No matter, it is after all one of the world's supreme melodies, and Scholl is part of the motley collection of big-name performers Decca has culled from its catalog for this release, which also includes Luciano Pavarotti, Cecilia Bartoli, Marilyn Horne, Bryn Terfel, et al. The anthology is weighted heavily toward the baroque, with a number of Bach selections and seven tracks from Messiah (another work that has by popular tradition become most associated with Christmas even though it was conceived as an Easter celebration). The latter make a sort of mini-anthology within this anthology, giving you a series of "ultimate" moments from Handel's masterpiece--but you certainly won't want to be without the entire work. --Herbert Fellows

This CD is eloquent and so magnetically alluring. It begins with the ever so popular (sopranist) Ms. Leontyne Price's "Ave Maria" and finishes beautifully with the entire operatic voices of the English Choir in the song "Amen". I'm always floored by the voices of Ms. Leontyne Price and Mr. Jose Carrera. The instrumentalists and the great composing of many of the fine songs listed on this CD is superb; well job done by the conductors, very.

I heard this CD being played t a friends house during Christmas and enjoyed it so much I immediately went on line and bought it.
excellent music to listen quietly by yourself bringing back memories of the days you also performed some of the music in your choir or orchestra.

Happy listening

A very good sampler of classical sacred Christmas music, sung or performed by some of today's finest musicians and singers. Perhaps a bit too generous with selections from Handel's Messiah but all very well arranged and performed. If you liked the Ultimate Hymn CD you should like this Christmas companion.
