Andrea Bocelli's 2009 My Christmas album finds the Italian tenor performing various classic holiday-themed songs that touch on a mix of classical, opera, and pop. Included are such well-known holiday songs as "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town," "O Tannenbaum," and "Silent Night." The versatile Bocelli also delves into such iconic Christmas hits as "Blue Christmas" and "The Christmas Song" (featuring a duet with Natalie Cole). Of course, the opera and classic songs are Bocelli's bread and butter, and here listeners get such lavishly produced cuts as "Adeste Fidelis," "Cantique del Noel," and "Caro Gesu Bambino."

    Andrea Bocelli My Christmas

    Nice mix of Christmas favorites and, of course, with the magnificent voice of Andrea Bocelli. The rendition of "What Child is This" with Mary J. Blige is particularly moving. In fact, all of the duets are quite good, especially "The Christmas Song" with Natalie Cole.

    Andrea Bocelli and David Foster have done it again!

    Andrea Bocelli is magnificent!

    Anytime PBS aired the show of Andrea Bocelli performing these songs I watched it. I bought the CD shortly after and continue to enjoy listening to the special guests Natalie Cole, The Mormon Tabernacle Choir, Mary J Blige - amazing, The Muppets - I laughed hysterically, Reba McEntire and Katherine Jenkins - never heard of her before, she has such a beautiful voice and blends well with Andreas' beautifully! Andrea performs "God Bless Us Everyone" from the new Disney movie "A Christmas Carol" so joyful! The songs Andrea sings solo are amazing!

    It Was What I Expected

    I have long been a fan of Andrea Bocelli and his marvelous voice. This CD was everything I expected in a Christmas album from him. His renditions of the familiar old Christmas songs and carols have a slightly different twist. It is a shame that he included guest artists on three or four of the songs. I would have liked to have heard more of his singing without the others.

    I have each and every one of Andrea's CDs.

    As I write this, my very first review of anything or anyone, I am listening to His Christmas CD. I listen to at least one and sometimes more CDs of Andreas' each day.
    He is my favorite singer in all the world and this new CD does not dissapoint. I sing along to the ones I am famliar with and hum to the rest. I makes my heart swell. It is reverent and joyful.
    Thanks Andrea

    Love this album!

    This is a beautiful album! I bought it last year and am playing it already again and it's only October! Bocelli's voice is at its best on this CD. All of the songs are great, and there are great duos on it, like with Reba McIntyre. But my favorite is "Angels We Have Heard on High". You feel like you're hearing him live in concert, gives you goose bumps.

    Best Christmas CD in years!

    I knew it would be wonderful already as I had watched his performance on Public Television but knew I still had to have a copy for myself. We played it many times over the holidays and enjoyed it every time.

    The choice of the picture and Title were just as the CD said !

    I was so moved by the entire CD, that I listened to it for hours. I was thrilled to hear someone with such comand over his voice, it gave me chills, I'm a soprano and I apprciate a fine voice. I couldn't have made a better choice.

    A wonderful CD for Christmas listening

    This is an amazing CD. I heard him play on a TV show and just needed his CD. He is an amazing artist and this CD tells it all.
