WOW Christmas [2002]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Lisa Zhito
Why didn't they think of this one sooner? Collect material from several years' worth of CCM-market holiday projects and compile them in one release. The WOW brand, which has successfully mined such multi-artist, multi-label compilations in the past, is a natural to tackle this Christmas greatest-hits project. It's a monumental task, since the Christian market is deluged with holiday releases each year, but this two-CD set hits most of the highlights, even reaching back to 1995 to pluck Steven Curtis Chapman's "Christmas Is All in the Heart" out of Christmases past. Contemporary classics like Michael W. Smith's "Emmanuel" and Jennifer Knapp's "Sing Mary Sing" join some ...

Why didn't they think of this one sooner? Collect material from several years' worth of CCM-market holiday projects and compile them in one release. The WOW brand, which has successfully mined such multi-artist, multi-label compilations in the past, is a natural to tackle this Christmas greatest-hits project. It's a monumental task, since the Christian market is deluged with holiday releases each year, but this two-CD set hits most of the highlights, even reaching back to 1995 to pluck Steven Curtis Chapman's "Christmas Is All in the Heart" out of Christmases past. Contemporary classics like Michael W. Smith's "Emmanuel" and Jennifer Knapp's "Sing Mary Sing" join some favorite renditions of traditional holiday songs: Rebecca St. James's funked-up take on "Sweet Little Jesus Boy" and Amy Grant's inspiring "Breath of Heaven" are two longtime favorites. While Wow Christmas commits a few sins of omission -- Chris Rice's "Welcome to Our World" is notable for its absence -- it also has included some hard-to-find pieces. Rachael Lampa performed "Ave Maria" on the 2000 Child of the Promise tour, but good luck finding a recorded copy anywhere but here. Ditto Tobymac's jamming "This Christmas," which was available for sale only on the artist's web site last year. This is one collection worthy of its "wow!" moniker.
All Music Guide - Johnny Loftus
Following the success of 2002's WOW Christmas is a new version for 2005, offering 30 holiday songs and Christian favorites stretched over two CDs. There are selections from veterans like Amy Grant "Christmas to Remember", Jars of Clay a reverent "Little Drummer Boy", and Michael W. Smith "Welcome to Our World", but it's the sound of contemporary Christian pop that dominates here. Barlowgirl and Relient K turn in rocked-up versions of "O Holy Night" and "Deck the Halls," while Selah's "Silent Night" is gentle and solemn. Other WOW highlights include Bethany Dillon adding a dusky R&B touch to "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" and a slick, electronic-tinged "What Child Is This?" from ZOEgirl.
