This is my favorite album by Laura Nyro -- every song flows into the other, and is so heart-felt -- it is soothing and uplifting, absorbing to listen to. I was glad when it came out on CD a couple of years back, because I'd wanted to give it as a gift. Last night I was casting about for something to listen to at home and realized I should order my own as well!

Laura Nyro had a voice which was as powerful and beautiful as any singer in musical history. In Christmas and the Beads of Sweat, she combined her vocal artistry, poetic lyrics, and unflagging sense of beautiful melody, to produce an excellent album. While perhaps not her magnum opus, (listen to Eli and the Thirteenth Confession), this CD is still top flight. Especially good is the song, Upstairs by a Chinese Light, which shows her poetic, vocal and musical talents to the fullest degree: The steam of china tea/You could hear the woman sing/In the soft flames of spring. Ms Nyro died at the age of forty-nine, but still left us a varied and great musical legacy to enjoy.
