Overview

God may work in mysterious ways, but the popularity of the Sunday-night series "Touched by an Angel" is no mystery. With a strong cast led by Della Reese and a wonderfully uplifting theme, the program is both dramatic and life affirming. The program's first musical companion, 1998's TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL: THE ALBUM, captured the show's spirit with singers drawn from Nashville and the R&B world, and THE CHRISTMAS ALBUM ups the ante. The disc celebrates the birth of Christ with spiritual themes, from traditional tracks such as Randy Travis's "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" and Collin Raye's "O Holy Night" to originals culled from several genres: gospel (Amy Grant), R&B (Kenny Lattimore), country (Wayne Watson), and blues (Keb' Mo'). Even Welsh teen Charlotte Church, she of the soaring soprano, chimes in with a sacred song from the 19th century. The album closes with "An Irish Blessing," highlighted by a spoken portion by Irish-accented cast member Roma Downey, who both broadens the disc's scope and closes it on a solemn note that embodies the soul of the show and of the event it's honoring.
