This review is from: A Christmas Cornucopia (Audio CD)
When I heard that Annie Lennox was doing a Christmas cd I was rather shocked. It didnt sound like the kind of thing that she would do. However, as soon as i heard it I was completely won over. The only new composition here is 'Universal Child' which is a lovely song written by Annie and has been performed on a few occasions over the last few months - initially in the US on 'Idol Gives Back'. Its a great song and had it been released a few years back would undoubtedly have been a big hit.
The highlights here though are the traditional carols, my personal favorite being 'The Holly and the Ivy' which amazingly has an African vibe (which even more surprisingly works!). I couldnt have imagined Annie singing 'Angels from The Realms of Glory' and 'Silent Night' which Annie sings beautifully.
This is a lovely thoughtful and beautifully original collection of traditional Christmas classics which deserves to do very well.
