A Musically Soothing Christmas Delight!
E. M. Holderman | Perryville, Kentucky USA | 11/09/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"With the Holiday's fast approaching, most are looking for some really good Christmas music to buy for themselves or as gifts. Trust me on this, you can't go wrong with "The Carols of Christmas." It's one of my most favorite Christmas cd's (the other being "A Charlie Brown Chritmas: The Music of Vince Guaraldi"). It has become a Holiday classic in our home! With a delicate, yet strong balance, this cd is beyond beautiful! Musically, the sounds vary from solo paino, acoustic guitar & synthesizers to saxaphone, clarinet, harps & percussions - It's totally instrumental. Windham Hill fans, rejoice! George Winston, Will Ackerman, Liz Story, Brian Keane, Jim Brickman, John Boswell, Tracy Silverman, David Darling, is a holiday sampling of Windham Hills' best. And yes, this would make a great Christmas gift for anyone - I always give a couple each year. Perhaps the best way to describe this compilation is "New Age meets Light Jazz"...and thats a wonderful thing. It will leave you with a soothing, serene excitment for the Holidays. Makes for wonderful background music at any Christmas celebration! Cuddle up with a hot cuppa peppermint tea or some hot cocca and let "The Carol's of Christmas" work it's magic on your heart."
Christmas music for the soul

"This is a great CD! I generally go for really traditional Christmas music, but this adds a soothing, contemporary element to those familiar carols, in a purely instrumental form. The blends of sounds, the moods conveyed, all come together to give a wonderful listening experience. This intimate, sometimes melancholy music makes you want to snuggle up to someone you love."
A must-have

"I never write reviews or anything remotely close, but I have to throw in my two cents here...and rather than gush, I'll just say that I have now purchased this CD 4 times since it came out - and they've all been for me (I tend to lose all my good CD's). There isn't another album out there that would make me consider doing the same. The holidays, simply put, are not complete without "The Carols of Christmas.""
