Overview

In the late '80s, the Narada label competed with Windham Hill in the new age market, so it was not a surprise when this Christmas collection was released. Using the same format as the Winter Solstice series, this recording is made up of the label's top artists offering their interpretations on seasonal classics. Unlike the Windham Hill recordings, which are almost exclusively acoustic, most of these selections feature the heavy use of synthesizers and sequencers. The results are surprisingly impressive as the combination of electronic and acoustic instrumentation prove to be quite evocative. There are many subtle moments here, and there isn't a weak track in the bunch. This recording will certainly add to the Christmas joy either through carefully listening or simply as background music.

The Narada Christmas Collection 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

Classic Christmas carrols performed by Narada Artists. No bad vocals with hokey lyrics -- just a pleasing instrumental collection, with a bit of a ''New Age'' sound.
