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.

KJ has produced a Christmas album that is not only very easy and pleasant to listen to but also contains tracks that will appeal to everyone. Unlike some 'classical' artists who feel the need to hit the 'esoteric' button at least once during their Christmas albums, Katherine has avoided the temptation to do this.

This album plays to her strengths delivering individual interpretations for each song from the sexy way she sings 'Santa baby' to the more formal interpretations of the traditional songs. While she is not a true 'opera' mezzo like the amazing Elina Garanca she has got a very listenable voice, stunning good looks and now she knows where she fits musically I think she will continue to deliver excellent albums like this one.

As for the 'free' Christmas card, I'm sure it will appeal to some but to me its just a waste of a few trees. I would rather have had an additional track.

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.

Yet another great album from a very talented lady. Don't be fooled in thinking it's going to be very operatic and in a foreign language, it's not. The tracks are great to listen to and fabulous versions for the festive season.
If you're already a fan of Katherine Jenkins you'll love this album.

As a foreigner, I have never heard of the singer before, but I was quite pleased with her singing. I was especially fond of her performance of the internationally well-known traditional carols, such as O Come O Come Emmanuel, Ding Dong Merrily On High, Away in a Manger etc. Some christmas songs are not sung - or arranged - just in my taste, but generally I would recommend this Christas album for every foreigners who are interested in traditional ways of Christmas celebration in English speaking countries.
