A glorious Christmas album - bravo Barbra!
on 21 October 2014
This wonderful CD issued by Sony Legacy is a new version of Streisand’s The Classic Christmas Album with the songs and song sequence handpicked by Barbra herself. The new  version comprises songs previously released on Streisand’s Christmas albums as well as a special back cover photo from Barbra’s personal collection. Barbra has long been my favourite singer - no other artist inhabits a song like her - and each track is told like a story. Her phrasing is immaculate and her voice is warm and tender, whilst being strident where it is required.
An intimate listen to get you in the mood for Christmas. Turn down the lights, stoke up the fire and sit back, relax and bathe in the warmth this glorious CD generates. Quite simply - wondrous.
