I've listened to a fair few Christmas albums (haven't we all!)and each time they're billed as being a different take on Christmas, but they never match up to expectation. They just end up sounding like every other Christmas album you've ever heard. Jenkins is a master at delivering the truly different, and that's one of the reasons he gets my vote every time. Stella Natalis is a beautiful album, now uplifting, now calming and stamped all the way through with Jenkins' personality and style. I can't recommend this album enough, expecially if you're jaded and wanting to put the heart and soul back into Christmas.
