I could write a really long-winded, detailed review of this album. I could talk about how "Mary, Did You Know" will make you cry. I could heap praises on the unspeakably amazing arrangement of "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy" which is even more astounding than usual for a group that always does astounding arrangements. I could get all excited about Kirstie and Avi nailing their leads ("Sleigh Ride" and "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" respectively) AND the fact that Kevin gets to sing several lines in "Mary..." I could rave over their original song "That's Christmas to Me" which is both beautiful and moving. Oh, I could even claim that the chord variations introduced in "Silent Night" are actually how the song was supposed to be performed all this time, but we have been getting it wrong for the past 200 years! I could talk all day about the way "Hark! the Herald Angels Sing" starts out with the most beautiful traditional choral performance and ends up as a rousing gospel piece. I could wind up by talking about how the remaining four seasonal songs ("Let It Go", "White Winter Hymnal", "Don't Worry Be Happy/Winter Wonderland", "Santa Claus is Coming to Town") are amazing in their own ways. But I won't......because that would take too much time that I could spend listening to this incredible album. So.......................just buy it! Run, don't walk to your favorite store or click, click, click as fast as you can and download it right now. Don't wait until Christmas. You won't be sorry!
