Sensational vocalist Linda Eder has a resonance so beautiful, she has become one of America's most endearing performers. From her stint with Broadway's Jekyll & Hyde and various television appearances, Eder's seasonal effort Christmas Stays the Same (2000) is most appropriate. Her vocal dynamics featured on her sophomore album It's No Secret Anymore (1999) made Eder's warm compositions a favorite among critics, so naturally her Christmas album does the same. She handpicks her own holiday favorites such as "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town," "Silent Night," "Little Drummer Boy," and "Ave Maria" for a delightful collection of sonic mastery. She is assisted by a full orchestra on several tracks, making Christmas Stays the Same even more exquisite. It's a pleasing release for any fan of holiday music or follower of theatrical singers and composers
