This is a beautiful arrangement on this album, ive heard the USA release and us UK fans are being treated to extra songs on the 2 disc edition. Its a shame Sarah doesnt get enough credit here as she sings beautifully, her arrangements are astounding and vocal ability is a force to be reckoned with, so come on UK lets support our home talent and get Sarah B into our charts, cant wait for the Symphony tour next year!!!

Format: Audio CD
Although I was very keen to buy this album as soon as I could, I must declare that there was a time when the very thought of buying Sarah's music was unthinkable to me. My different attitude to her music may partly be due to my more varied musical tastes these days, but my hearing is also not what it once was. As I remember, I always felt that Sarah's very high voice was too piercing for my liking, but I am no longer able to hear the top end of the range, so the part of her voice that annoyed me no longer does so. As such, I am now able to recognize her true brilliance as a singer. If you are unfamiliar with Sarah's voice, maybe you should listen to some samples, particularly to see if you like her voice when she hits those very high notes.

I suspect that there are too many Christmas songs here for people to play when they don't want to hear Christmas music, but it's a great album that includes several songs that aren't heard too often, as well as several famous songs, though they aren't always what you might expect.

The opening track is a cover of Arrival, the Abba semi-instrumental in which the original versions features the women humming and singing la-la along to the music. But Sarah's version features proper lyrics. The credits only mention Benny and Bjorn as co-writers, so whether they wrote these lyrics in the seventies but didn't use them, or whether they wrote the lyrics later, I cannot say, but I've never heard them before and this fully-fledged song makes a great opening track.

Next comes a cover of a Vince Gill ballad, Colder than winter, which is great to find here. I'm a huge fan of Vince's music, but although he once recorded a duet with Barbra Streisand, I wouldn't necessarily expect to find one of his songs on a Sarah Brightman album.

i love this album and have been playing it every day since i got it.Its isnt as good as Symphony which i think is one of sarahs best albums but if you a sarah fan and already have sum other albums i very much recomend buying this one too,and she looks amazing in the photos.Probably wont listen to the whole album all year around except for 'arrival' and 'iv bin this way befor' which for me are two stand out tracks.

Sarah`s brand new album is really great. From beautiful ballads to more up-tempo songs,this album brings light in your home at Christmas time. From Arrival,Ave maria,In the bleack midwinter to amazing When a child is born,I`ve been this way before and many other songs,this album is a must have,just as her previous one,Symphony. All i can say about her work is that she is the goddess of music.

I am greatly looking forward to this Winter Symphony CD sarah is spoiling us this year God bless her!!
I have seen a couple of track lists, both differing slightly, so i look forward to Amazon revealing this UK version track list, i hope also that they will amend the spelling as i'm quite sure there is nothing synful about this collection of tracks:)

Although I write as a Sarah Brightman fan, this album is a wonderful collection of Sarah's favorite Christmas and winter themed songs. An unusual mixture - such as I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday to It's Colder Than Winter and The great Neil Diamond Cover I've Been This Way Before. The special limited edition had a wonderul song Carpe Diem (seize the day), a Lennon cover Happy Christmas (War is Over) Sarah also gives the Abba track Arrival a Christmas makeover - lyrics written by Benny & Bjorn for their stage musical which were unused according to various reports - making sarah the first artist ever given permission to sing ABBA's unused material. Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus are quite picky about who uses their materials. Sarah is a big star and an Abba fan which might have helped ! :-)
