A perfect way to enhance the holiday season, O Holy Night gives families the chance to hear the glorious voices of the Boys Choir of Harlem while experiencing the radiant art their singing has inspired.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Hark! Angels-and the angelic voices of the Boys Choir of Harlem-harmonize in an illustrated collection of five traditional carols that comes packaged with a CD recording of the songs. Ringgold (Tar Beach) conjures hosts of racially diverse white-winged heavenly messengers. She depicts the Holy Family and the Wise Men as people of color in a series of folk-art-inspired acrylics. In each painting the texture of the underlying canvas shows through, reflecting the humble and deliberate mood of the proceedings. All ages. (Oct.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
This elegant, gold-clad salute to the season is introduced by the Christmas story as told in Luke 2:1-20 of the King James Bible. The text consists of the verses of five traditional Christmas carols, which are sung on the accompanying CD by the choir. The story as such begins on the front end-pages, which depict a hilly landscape with the Holy Couple on donkey approaching an open barn. On the back spread they are leaving with the Child. "Silent Night" is a depiction of the adoration of the kings; it is sung in a contemporary, improvised manner—almost unrecognizable—with a heavy beat. "O Come All Ye Faithful" adds the shepherds, etc. and is sung in a more traditional fashion mainly by the entire choir. For "O Holy Night" angels begin to appear. The song is sung by both the choir and individual voices with an underlying beat that builds to a spiritual end. "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing" has the angels surrounding Mother and Child as they sing "glory to the newborn King"—the recording is a traditional choral version. Finally, "Joy to the World" presents an older Child with golden halo and a white star's beams shining on Him and his parents; the recording ends with a triumphant chorus. Ringgold's style of painting emphasizes solid forms, patterned garments, black outlines, and placement of figures of different races against solid-colored backgrounds, creating an atmosphere of humanistic reverence with a spiritual content that enhances the familiar verses. 2004, Amistad/ HarperCollins Publishers, Ages all.
—Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
School Library Journal
PreS Up-The lyrics for "Silent Night," "O Come, All Ye Faithful," "O Holy Night," "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing," and "Joy to the World" are accompanied by richly colored paintings depicting a dark-skinned holy family and a multiethnic cast of shepherds, angels, and Wise Men. Deep purples and blues, highlighted by gold lettering and halos, emphasize the joy and mystery of this special night. The book begins with the text of Luke 2:1-20 from the King James Version of the Bible (in very small font) and is accompanied by a compact disc of the five carols, sung by the Boys Choir of Harlem. A lovely holiday choice.-E. M. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Sumptuous gold and brilliant jewel tones are the palette for this visually arresting collection of traditional Christmas carols illustrated in Ringgold's distinctive style. The King James Version of the Nativity story from the book of Luke serves as the volume's introduction, followed by five carols using traditional words and multiple verses in white type on arched golden panels. Ringgold illustrates each carol separately, so the entire volume is not one continuous Nativity story, but rather multiple versions with many views of Jesus at different stages of his life. All of the Biblical characters are people of color, while the hosts of angels are of many ethnicities and ages. She places the characters silhouetted against plain backgrounds of vividly saturated color, highlighting their faces and their intricately patterned costumes. The title of each song is in large calligraphy in a different bright color, adding more visual enhancement to this beautifully designed volume. Includes a CD of the Harlem Boys Choir singing the carols in the same order as the text. (Picture book. 5-9)
