Christmas with Mario Lanza

( 1 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Bradley Torreano
Mario Lanza's collection of Christmas songs takes on the Italian-themed sound of his regular work, making for some interesting renditions. Everything is done in his traditional orchestrated style, with emphasis on the tones and sounds, which makes for some beautiful takes. This may not be for everyone, especially those who do not enjoy Lanza's broad croon. But for those looking for Italian-themed performances in their Christmas records, this is an excellent album to buy.

    An Old Favorite

    It is the voice that has endured. Mario Lanza's voice has such a range with a baritone quality that is still unmatched by any tenor. It is the smoothness off his voice that keeps this recording on the shelf. Remember the recordings are 40 years old. RCA has done an excellent job remastering the recordings.
