"There is a separate DVD, Christmas At The Vatican, that is bundled with the audio CD. The Three Tenors do not perform on the DVD but it is the best part of this package. The DVD is 102 minutes. Excellent camera work and sound quality with a diverse group of artists including: Jewel, Joan Orleans and the Harlem Ten, Bryan Adams, Charlotte Church, Sarah Brightman, Dionne Warwick and Sasha, Tom Jones, Al Bano, Alesandro Sanz, Manhattan Transfer, Jennifer Paige&Chance Scoggins and others.
Performed Live at the Vatican. It is spectacular!"
Traditional and formal

"Two of the three tenors perform all but one of the selections on this CD, with Domingo singing only the last title, Ingemisco. A nice mix of classical and staid popular Carols, Christmas with the Three Tenors is exactly what one might expect from these icons of the opera world. Both Pavarotti and Carreras offer versions of Adeste Fidelis, Panis Angelicus, Mille Cherubini, and Ave Maria, in very similar arrangements. In addition, Pavarotti performs lovely versions of Pieta Signora, Gesu Bambino, O Holy Night, and Agnus Dei. Carreras does beautifully with White Christmas, Misericordia, Silent Night, and Ave Verum Corpus. Very formal, very traditional, with lush instrumental and choral accompaniment, this collection conveys the more religious facet of Christmas."
