My Christmas by Andrea Bocelli
From an Amazon Top Reviewer:
ndrea Bocelli’s first-ever Christmas album was worth the wait! These songs stun me with their beauty and natural charm. Bocelli is in excellent form here and the duets are equally beautiful. The songs on this album are all nothing short of perfect; and Bocelli’s ability to perform a wide variety of holiday music impresses me even more. The quality of the sound is excellent and the artwork is very nicely done.
Some of the songs I like the most (although they all are special) include the gorgeous “White Christmas / Bianco Natale;” Andrea sings this with panache and it truly comes from his heart and soul. The piano arrangement works well for this number as well. “Angels We Have Heard on High” is lovely; and Andrea really opens up and delivers this out like the pro he truly is! The operatic qualities of his voice lend themselves so well to “Angels We Have Heard on High;” I love it. In addition, “The Lord’s Prayer” is wonderful as The Mormon Tabernacle Choir joins Bocelli; and I really like listening to “Adeste Fidelis” with its lush musical arrangement. “Cantique De Noel” is very pretty also.
Of course, there are songs for children, families and really anyone to enjoy that are not quite so religious. Listen for a sublime version of “The Christmas Song” which Bocelli does with Natalie Cole as a duet; and “Jingle Bells” is performed with the voices of The Muppets! Bocelli sings “Blue Christmas” with such passion I don’t think I’ll be forgetting it anytime soon and Reba McEntire’s vocals enhance “Blue Christmas” all the more.
There are even more songs that showcase wonderful duets. Mary J. Blige sounds great with Bocelli on “What Child Is This;” it’s a major highlight of this CD. Katherine Jenkins provides excellent vocals to go with Bocelli’s singing on “I Believe.” Great!
Andrea Bocelli and the other artists on this album rank very, very favorably in my book; this is a stunning holiday CD that is an instant classic thanks to their incredible talent. I highly recommend this album for anyone who enjoys a mixture of religious holiday music along with other Christmas songs that are more secular and playful.
