It's amazing how, when you see a movie, you don't really notice all the music. You're left with a vague impression, and a memory of some really nice parts, so you decide to buy the soundtrack CD. There's nothing wrong with this CD - it's nicely performed and recorded - it's just that I didn't notice while we were watching the movie how much of the music is based on one theme, which keeps recurring. It makes the soundtrack a little boring to listen to straight through, so I'll select the odd track now and again.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of Those Rare Film Soundtracks of Significance 17 Nov. 2006
By Grady Harp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Philippe Rombi is a composer new to this listener and being so impressed with the film 'Joyeux Noël' encouraged purchasing the Soundtrack. Not a mistake at all. For once the entire music excerpts of significance are intact, even the artists who were guests, providing professional opera singers for the voices of the two cinematic actor/singers.

Rombi opens the film about WW I with very eloquent, quiet, lovely solo piano music, and very often he is so sensitive to the message of the film that just when the action looks as though the music should be of the Carmina Burana ilk, Rombi settles for orchestral Adagios. He has elected to use the carols Stille Nacht and Adeste Fidelis for the actor Sprink to sing and uses the voice of the gifted tenor Rolando Villazon to intone the music. To establish the relationship between the two opera singers, Sprink and Anna (Villazon and Natalie Dessay), he has them perform a duet version of Bach's 'Bist du bei mer' - the words of which take on deep meaning as the film progresses. When he has a moment for Anna to sing a solo, he writes his own version of Ave Maria for Anna/Natalie Dessay to sing. It is very lovely.

There are several 'tunes' written for the score - 'Fraternizers' Hymn' ('I'm Dreaming Of Home'), the theme for Anna and Nikolaus - which very well could endure long after the score and film disappear, they are that fine.

In all the score is very strong and well played, sung, and conducted. This is a soundtrack that bears attention for lovers of beautiful music. Grady Harp, November 06

5.0 out of 5 stars Joyeux Noël CD 16 April 2009
By Pamela G. Maher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Absolutely beautiful. The perfect background music for a Winter dinner party without being too Christmas-in-your-face. Nothing is corny or jumpy. You certainly won't find yourself chewing in rhythm to any of these songs, as you would if you had Jingle Bell Rock on the turn table (incidentally, I loathe Jingle Bell Rock). It's so pleasant to listen to as you're sitting by the fire with a book. In my case, that would be a fake alcohol-gel fire, but no matter. Fire is fire. And this CD puts me in a peaceful, almost spiritual frame of mind. Ave Maria is spine-tinglingly beautiful. As I listen I'm transported back to the film, which was so well done... I highly recommend this CD. You won't want to play it just at Christmas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Joyeux Noel (Merry Christmas) Review 7 Mar. 2010
By R. Tollefson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I own this movie on DVD and was impressed not only with the storyline, but the music in it as well. I didn't know an actual CD soundtrack to it existed for several months until running across it recently on Amazon. I am very happy with this CD; I've played it several times and have pulled my favorite tracks and downloaded them onto my MP3 player. Delivery time on this product was prompt as well. Thank you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Every music lover should hear this CD. 14 Sept. 2012
By Barbara M. McLane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I saw the movie and was fascinated by the beautiful music. At the end, as the credits were rolling, the instrumental was unbelievable. I would not have known about this CD had I not seen the movie. I wish everyone who loves music could hear it.
5.0 out of 5 stars A poignant, timeless theme, achingly beautiful 29 Mar. 2010
By Gerald A. Regan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This soundtrack still graces my auto's audio system, more than three months after Christmas. The music, like the film that spawned it, is achingly beautiful, focused on the remarkable few weeks during the first year of the Great War when the opposing forces actually, and bravely, chose to lay down their arms and fraternize. See the film first, then buy the album. The music will forever grace you, and help you appreciate the complexity, and simplicity, that we as humans embody.
