Overview

Reunion Records' artist roster is an impressive one - encompassing Michael W. Smith, Kathy Troccoli, Clay Crosse and the late Rich Mullins, to name a few -- so the label's holiday package was bound to be an agreeable piece of seasonal ear candy. The fact that most of these songs were previously released on these artists' individual projects doesn't detract from the project's strength, since the songs are strong enough to stand on their own merits. Case in point is Michael W. Smith's tender "Welcome to Our World," written by the ever-eloquent Chris Rice; the song is as powerful here as it was on Smith's 1998 Christmas release. Rich Mullins's "You Gotta Get Up" sparkles with the same childlike wonder and excitement it had when we first heard it in 1995 on his landmark release A Liturgy, a Legacy and a Ragamuffin Band. This collection also marks the debut of new signing Joy Williams, who opens the album with "2000 Decembers Ago." Judging by Williams's promising performance, she's off to a good start.

All Music Guide - Ashleigh Kittle
In 2000, Reunion Records celebrated the holiday season with the compilation project A Christmas Reunion. The album features CCM artists performing both original and previously-released songs, in addition to traditional Christmas favorites. Songs include Joy Williams' "2000 Decembers Ago," Michael W. Smith's recording of "Welcome to Our World," and Rich Mullins' "You Gotta Get Up." The album closes with five instrumental pieces, including "Away in the Manger" and "What Child Is This?"
