The Best of Narada Christmas

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rodney Batdorf
The Best of Narada Christmas is a double-disc set featuring almost all of the label's biggest acts -- David Arkenstone, Dordan, Michael Gettel, Bruce Mitchell, David Lanz, Michael Whalen, Kostia, Billy McLaughlin, Brian Mann, Spencer Brewer, and Wayne Gratz -- performing familiar holiday tunes in the atmospheric style that has become the Narada signature.
