I love Christmas music and came across Westenra's upcoming Christmas album on Amazon. I tried a few samples and was impressed enough to pre-order it. Then I came to this recording and listened to a few more samples - what a great collection of songs from such a wonderful voice! I don't typically listen to classic music so a 'best of' album is perfect for me for those occasions when I do feel like listening to something different. I love the variety on this album and would highly recommend it if you have an eclectic taste for music and want to add some classic singing in English and other languages to your own collection.
Lovely voice of course, and some very well known songs featured. Just falls short of excellent for me because the mix of types of song doesn't quite hit the spot for me, but this is a very personal view. By any standard it is a good album.
