Christmas Worship

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Lisa Zhito
Modern worship songs, holiday carols, and original compositions make up John Tesh's Christmas Worship, a follow-up to his hugely popular A Deeper Faith release. Like that project, this one is a blend of instrumental and vocal pieces, with Tesh taking the lead on several, including the opening track, "This Is Your Gift." While Tesh the composer/arranger/musician is able to create moody, evocative compositions, vocals often seem beside the point. Thus the gentle strings on "Silent Night" and intricate piano work on "Joy to the World" create a worshipful holiday mood in a way that tracks like the overwrought "Hungry" do not. Tesh strikes a serious note throughout this ...

Barnes & Noble - Lisa Zhito
Modern worship songs, holiday carols, and original compositions make up John Tesh's Christmas Worship, a follow-up to his hugely popular A Deeper Faith release. Like that project, this one is a blend of instrumental and vocal pieces, with Tesh taking the lead on several, including the opening track, "This Is Your Gift." While Tesh the composer/arranger/musician is able to create moody, evocative compositions, vocals often seem beside the point. Thus the gentle strings on "Silent Night" and intricate piano work on "Joy to the World" create a worshipful holiday mood in a way that tracks like the overwrought "Hungry" do not. Tesh strikes a serious note throughout this release, which is capped by "God in the Stairwell," a spoken-word piece recounting the events of September 11th. Perhaps it was intended to be a joyful picture of God's presence at the victims' hour of need, but it's nonetheless a somber reminder of a terrible national tragedy, and not exactly standard holiday fare. Those seeking a little more warmth might prefer Tesh's 1995 A Romantic Christmas to the thought-provoking "worship experience" he provides for this hallowed season.
All Music Guide - Heather Phares
An unabashedly big, sweeping tribute to the power of the holiday spirit, John Tesh's Christmas Worship plays like a new age/CCM hybrid, mixing synth-driven instrumentals like "Joy to the World" and original Christmas songs like "This Is Your Gift" and "Hungry," which are more ambitious -- and explicitly Christian -- than anything that appeared on Tesh's previous holiday albums. The involvement of CCM artists such as Rich Mullins, Matt Huesmann, and Kathryn Scott emphasizes the religious aspect of the album, particularly on Mullins' "Awesome God" and "We Fall Down." But even with this newfound focus, tracks such as "It Wouldn't Be Christmas Without You" still reflect the festive feel of the season and recall Romantic Christmas. For the most part, Christmas Worship works as an invitation to share the holiday with Tesh in a more intimate and spiritual way, although "God in the Stairwell," a recounting of the September 11, 2001, attacks from God's point of view, is awkwardly executed despite its good intentions. Still, renditions of "Silent Night," "Away in a Manger," and other carols round out the album pleasantly, bringing a festive warmth to Tesh's occasionally too-synthetic sounding style.
