Makes your heart pause
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a really emotional album. Your heart hears the real meaning of Christmas and your soul will like it. If you are tired of the really POP Christmas music and would like to go to that quiet place, this is the CD for you. Michael is so talented and a really gifted musician. He uses traditional insturments to make this a very enjoyable listen. You will play this again and again. The birth of Jesus made me cry"
A Medieval Christmas Treat
Tom Anderson | Piney Flats, Tennessee United States | 10/24/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have almost 150 Christmas CDs, so believe me when I say this is one of the best Christmas albums I've ever heard! Christmas is about Christ, which this album makes abundantly and beautifully clear. Most of the songs are traditional carols, some of them quite ancient, while the others are originals written by Mr. Talbot.

The songs blend absolutely gorgeous orchestrations and arrangements with a boys choir and a hearty English chorale with definite medieval overtones. The two songs with Mr. Talbot's fellow monks just add to the overall effect of transporting the listener into the midst of a medieval celebration. I've heard no other Christmas album like this, although some tracks on Mannheim Steamroller's albums would be closest in style, and can't recommend it highly enough. Very beautiful, very spiritual, this album is truly what Christmas is all about."
Christmas At The Hermitage ~ A Franciscan Flavor To The Se
Brian E. Erland | Brea, CA - USA | 03/30/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"'Birth of Jesus: A Celebration of Christmas' is John Michael Talbot's nineteenth release. This CD contains -12 tracks- of beautifully performed traditional songs of the season. Some you'll know, ('We Three Kings'), others you probably won't ('The Appointed Time'). Still all in all, a very nice addition to anyones Christmas CD collection."
