5.0 out of 5 stars Nadolig Llawen a Blwyddyn Newydd Dda, Katherine
Katherine Jenkins recorded some Christmas songs for Decca, who have released a compilation featuring them together with a selection of sacred songs and called it My Christmas. However, this is the first bona-fide Christmas album by Katherine Jenkins.

The set opens with O come o come Emmanuel, a very slow song that is followed by the very upbeat Ding dong...

3.0 out of 5 stars Well it's OK
Well it's OK but as with pretty well all of Katherines CD's the content is good, but the recording is poor.
It's such a shame as she has a wonderful voice.

This review is from: This Is Christmas (Audio CD)
Katherine Jenkins recorded some Christmas songs for Decca, who have released a compilation featuring them together with a selection of sacred songs and called it My Christmas. However, this is the first bona-fide Christmas album by Katherine Jenkins.

The set opens with O come o come Emmanuel, a very slow song that is followed by the very upbeat Ding dong merrily on high. Two more contrasting Christmas songs would be hard to find, but Katherine is in top form on both songs and maintains the standard throughout the album.

Katherine sings the words (only partly in English) to In dulce jubilo, although the best-known version of this song is probably Mike Oldfield's instrumental version.

If you are looking for songs that aren`t heard too often, listen to Sleep quietly my Jesus (written by Ruth Heller, whose name I don't recognize), I wish you Christmas (written by John Rutter, whose name I certainly recognize) and Come what may (here performed as a duet with Placido Domingo, with two unfamiliar co-writers). Wexford carol and Angels from the realms of glory are traditional carols that don't turn up too often on mainstream Christmas albums.

This album provides an excellent mix of styles and sounds, while also mixing very familiar songs with some less obvious songs.

Would recommend this album if you appreciate a lady with a wonderful voice. A mixture of traditional and modern seasonal music accompanied by exquisite vocals. Will never age and can be listened to year after year. Buy it and you won't be disappointed.
