A Merry Little Christmas

4.8 6
by Linda Ronstadt
 
For her first holiday album, Linda Ronstadt draws on her love for traditional American standards -- a sound she successfully explored in the mid-'80s with Nelson Riddle's orchestra -- and her well-tuned ear for church chorales. She gives the 14 songs here a loving treatment, lacing the first half with lush string arrangements, mellow

Blends some very unusual chorale pieces with pieces that showcase her. Best version of Lo, How A Rose Ere Blooming I have heard - she is a capella with choir as is O Magnum Mysterium. Xicochi, Xicochi is an incredible organ and chorale piece that is extremely hard to find and her version of River, beautiful - haunting and memorable.

i listen to this even when it's not christmas....i love the gregorian chant sound of the men in the background....she reaches back to her catholic experience ....the south american lullaby, joni mitchell's river, and emanuelle are my favorites.....not your typical christmas album!

I'm happy that Linda finally rleased her new holiday CD. It's great! Especially the smooth duet with Rosemary Clooney on ''White Christmas''. That's nice. I'll be playing it next to my all time classic hits like ''Winter Wonderland'' by Johnny Mathis, ''The Christmas Song'' by Nat King Cole, and my favorite Chicago cabaret artist's like ''Christmas in Chicago'' by Michael Poss, and Karen Mason's ''What The World Needs Now'' medley. Linda has done it again, and it was well worth the wait!

Tired of the SAME OL' TIRED Christmas songs? Well, Linda Ronstadt has turned her magic on the holiday music genre. This CD starts out with 4 standard Christmas fare songs, done in a traditional, Nelson Riddle session, feel. Followed by a nice version of ''River''. From that point on, choral arrangments abound. Not your typical flair, and I was VERY impressed, and drawn into this CD. HIGHLY recommended!

I would agree with the other reviewers, this is an excellent Christmas recording by a fine singer. I was puzzled to see "Explicit Lyrics" as this is not something one would see on a Christmas CD, and I have owned this for some time without noticing any. Mystery solved, I think -- if you add this to Windows Media Player and use the "Find Album Info" button, someone who doesn't spell very well made an error on the song "Past Three O'Clock." Otherwise, unless you are offended by someone getting "weak in the knees" in 'River", you can buy this fine album without fear.
