Synopsis

Amazon.com essential recording
A fine selection of traditional carols mixed with contemporary takes on the birth of the Christ child, Christmas at the Brooklyn Tabernacle is a festive and joyful celebration of the season. True to their roots, the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir pays homage to their ethnic diversity by including a variety of styles: the funky Caribbean influenced "First Day of the Son," the soulful R&B groove of "They Followed His Star," and the exquisitely executed classicism of "Carol of the Bells." Also included are the popular "Happy Birthday Jesus," performed by the children's choir division, and a magnificently arranged rendition of director Carol Cymbala's "You Shall Call His Name Jesus." Featured soloists include the well-loved voices of Charles Allen, Susan Cymbala, and Karen Melendez. --Paige La Grone

This is a must for the Christmas Holiday!

"Looking for a way to get in the CHRISTmas spirit? Look no further. The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir will put you in the true meaning of Christmas with this great album!"
One of the best Christmas albums on the market
Jim Turner | 11/25/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an album that should definitely be a part of a Christmas collection. The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir has done on this album what they do best - they make music come alive. This Christmas album is no exception. The choir is magnificent, and the music is beautifully orchestrated. The familiar carols are done with the energetic style of the choir without losing their integrity. The original works by Carol Cymbala are well worth listening to - she is one of the most gifted choral songwriters in gospel music. I strongly recommend this Christmas album, and wouldn't be surprised if it becomes a favorite."
Happy Birthday, Jesus and other selections
Jim Turner | Edmond, OK United States | 01/29/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"My wife and I had been searching for the song we heard on K-Love called "Happy Birthday, Jesus". It's sung by a little girl (beginning and end) with a backing choir in the main part of the selection. After enough Googling, we finally found it on this CD.

Neither of us had even heard of the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir. Mormon? Yes. Brooklyn? No. The other selections on the CD are enjoyable and soulful. Still, our favorite is "Happy Birthday, Jesus" with the little girl. Sure, some say it's sappy and most so-called "progressives" and "intellectuals" would write it off as emotional fluff. Fine, so be it. Everyone's entitled to an opinion. I however prefer to focus on the reason for the CHRISTmas season, and that sweet, innocent little girl in "Happy Birthday, Jesus" can make even a big, rough old guy like me tear up when I hear it."
