5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding album features beautiful harmonies 22 Aug 2003
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
I suppose the Roches (Maggie, Suzzy and Terre) count as folk-rock singers, though really they defy musical classification. As I write this, I am not familiar with any of their other music, but this album clearly indicates that I am missing out on a lot.
Their lovely, clear, soprano voices combine to make brilliant harmonies to such great effect that they don’t actually need any musical backing. I would have been quite happy if they had recorded the whole album a Capella, but they wisely decided to mix things up by using a variety of instruments on some of the tracks.
Distinctive arrangements of old standards are another feature of this album – not everywhere, but on selected tracks. So the first time you play this you will never know quite what to expect but most of the arrangements are not too far removed from the standard.
Another aspect of this album that I particularly like is the choice of songs. Most of the really obvious ones have been omitted, although their harmonies are so magical that I’d happily listen to any Christmas song they choose to record.
The less obvious songs to be found here include Good King Wenceslas (the best version I’ve yet heard of this under-recorded song) and The holly and the ivy, both very popular in Britain but apparently less so in America. Also included are such wonderful songs as Angels we have heard on high, For unto us a child is born, Here we come a carolling and the opening track, Break forth o bounteous heavenly light. Two originals, Christmas passing through and Star of wonder, are also excellent.
Of the really obvious songs, their version of Away in a manger is truly inspired – it is one of the songs they sing without backing.

The Roches give the Christmas Carols genre a whole new twist - their vocal arrrangements lend interest to what can be [to the non-christmas-o-phile] an overfamiliar set of songs. Recommended, if you can find it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Alternative Christmas Arrangements 7 Sep 2005
Format:Audio CD
OK, so I bought this CD based on hearing the track Good King Wenceslas on the Terry Wogan show on BBC Radio Two and the three Roche sisters really can sing and harmonise. The arrangements on some of the tracks is refreshingly diffent. others however, are not so good, seeing as this will only get an outing over the Christmas period it truly is a welcome alternative to traditional renditions.

5.0 out of 5 stars we three kings 22 Dec 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This CD offers traditional and modern Christmas music with a distinctive up-beat sound and excellent word clarity which is a rare treat.
The 24 tracks provide some outstanding arrangements of well-known carols, such as O Little Town of Bethlehem and Good King Wenceslas. There is also an unusual version of It Came Upon a Midnight Clear which although an interesting arrangement, would have been enhanced by the use of the original words.
Overall this is the best CD of popular Christmas music I have heard in years. Hard to obtain, but worth the chase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yule Love It 30 Dec 2007
Format:Audio CD
The Roches are one of the best vocal acts in the world, and here they take a bunch of hoary old carols and hymns, mix them with a couple of original compositions, and produce the perfect Christmas album. For Unto Us A Child Is Born is a stunning arrangement, the three voices spiralling off in totally different directions but somehow remaining tied to the central theme and each other. Frosty The Snowman is hilarious - the girls affecting exaggerated New Yoik accents and arguing with a bunch of kids along the way. A few of the songs are done straight, and that leavens the mixture beautifully, giving you a chance to get ready for the next surprise. Play this in your house at Yuletide - a wonderful Christmas atmosphere is guaranteed.
