Synopsis

Amazon.com
Backed by lush orchestration and a choir of quite formal carolers, Michael Crawford's A Christmas Album plays as an elegant concert rather than a random collection of seasonal ditties. An entertainment embracing the good news of Christ's birth, A Christmas Album is thankfully not something we'll hear booming all over town as we shop till we drop. Instead, this is precisely the type of recording one might enjoy at home with family while making an advent wreath or preparing holiday goodies to be shared with loved ones. Crawford's rich theatricality and classical arrangements invoke a joyful sense of spirit in readiness for the Holy babe who came to light the world. There is comfort here. Following ritual and tradition in this timeless mode of celebration, one is both warmed and delivered by the heralding tones of Crawford and his army of singing angels. --Paige La Grone

MICHAEL CRAWFORD FANS & CHRISTIANS ALIKE THIS IS A MUST HAVE
Lesley Pegg | Marion, Ohio | 10/24/1999

"As a rule I do not listen to Christmas music until the day after Thanksgiving, but not this year. I have long been a fan of Michael Crawford. 10 Years ago, I became a Christian because of his music. I was overjoyed with "ON EAGLES WINGS" but this album tops it. The first time I heard "O, HOLY NIGHT", I had not only goose bumps on my arms, but tears streaming down my face. This song is pure, unadulterated praise and worship. This song, alone, will make you feel you've truly heard an angel's voice. "MARY DID YOU KNOW?", is also a soaring testament to the meaning of Christmas. As usual, Michael can pack emotion in each and every word, whether it be joy, praise or to bring a tear to the eye. For anyone who has a special relationship with her father, you will cry over "Scarlet Ribbons". The orchestrations and the children's choir are an excellant and uplifting blend with his emotional voice. The children's choir add a feel of light-heartedness and joy, as they will bring a smile to the face. For those familiar with contemporary Christian music, you will be treated to Twila Paris on "WHAT A STRANGE WAY TO SAVE THE WORLD". There isn't a bad song on the entire album. This is an excellant follow up to "ON EAGLES WINGS". I have long awaited a Christmas album from Michael and the wait has been well worth while. I would highly recommend this album to Christians and non-Christians alike as a wonderful addition to your Christmas collection."
The best Christmas album by far!

"Michael Crawford has the most amazing voice and he proves it in this CD. I first time I saw this CD was here and I bought it then and there. I am 13, but still love anything and everything this man does. He has the voice of an angel and, I'll say it again, it shows on this CD. MAKE ANOTHER CHRISTMAS CD! Some of my favorite songs are 'Scarlet Ribbons', 'Mary, Did You Know?", and 'Strange Way to Save the World'. They aren't well-known songs like 'Holly, Jolly Christmas' or 'Rudolph', but you learn to love each and every measure of music. I wish there were more!"
