I've listened to a fair few Christmas albums (haven't we all!)and each time they're billed as being a different take on Christmas, but they never match up to expectation. They just end up sounding like every other Christmas album you've ever heard. Jenkins is a master at delivering the truly different, and that's one of the reasons he gets my vote every time. Stella Natalis is a beautiful album, now uplifting, now calming and stamped all the way through with Jenkins' personality and style. I can't recommend this album enough, expecially if you're jaded and wanting to put the heart and soul back into Christmas.

This new festive CD from Karl Jenkins will be the soundtrack to christmas in my house - like some of his other albums I've got, it has beautiful, memorable tunes and feels very uplifting. My favourite album of his is Jenkins: The Armed Man - A Mass For Peacewhich I sang with my choir and I have playing at home all the time. This one is just as good - he never disappoints!

This work is true Karl Jenkins. It is an exciting blend of themes and rhythms from different cultures that blends into a brilliant musical composition.

Each time you listen to this work you hear another subtle twist in the music.

It is amazing

Karl Jenkins: Stella Natalis is excellent, it was my favourite Christmas present.
It is in two parts, 'Stella Natalis' and 'Joy to the World', and evokes the meaning of Christmas.
It encompasses KJ's 'Adiemus project' (Adiemus I/II/III/IV and V) style of music, which I would have loved to have continued beyond the 5th CD in the series.
Stella Natalis has progressed on from Adiemus V, but still reflects the 'Adiemus style' and, in 'Stella Natalis', incudes several tunes taken from the Adiemus series, particularly Adiemus IV - 'The Eternal Knot' (which was my favourite CD until now!).
Whereas an eclectic mix of sources have been used as the basis of the lyrics for the songs in 'Stella Natalis', 'Joy to the World' gives you a 'Karl Jenkins' arrangement of well known carols from around the world.
The only way to better this CD would be to hear Stella Natalis performed live, preferably with KJ conducting.
The Adiemus series which I think is brilliant:- Adiemus: Songs of Sanctuary, Adiemus II - Cantata Mundi Adiemus III - Dances of Time, Adiemus IV - The Eternal Knot and Adiemus V - Vocalise

1st heard this at a concert in Norwich Cathedral on a night where the temperature was -5C! Still loved it and love it still. Jenkins conducted the Stellar Natalis section of the concert and the 'band' were very entertaining so very good memories of this music.

This is one of the most patronising pieces of music I have had the displeasure of listening to (and singing in my choir), especially the movement 'From Our Earth' which is frankly just insulting to anyone who has any interest in space, not to mention have to sing 'ting ting ting ting ting' in the aptly named 'triangle song'. I wouldn't be surprised (as an atheist) if the religious community, that Mr. Jenkins is so desperately preaching, find this heavily insulting to their beliefs.

If this is any clue to the rest of Karl Jenkin's work, I wouldn't touch any other of his work with a barge pole for fear my IQ and creativity were affected.

(Sorry if this is a bit harsh, I am venting my opinions while practicing this movement in my choir.)

My wife and I sing with a Choral Society and these CDs are ideal for singing along with once we know most of the words and musical notes.
