What a Wonderful Christmas (2 CDs) Reviews

What a Wonderful Christmas (2 CDs)

Nobody likes Christmas more than Canadian singer Anne Murray, who first came into the public eye back in 1970 with the million-selling crossover single “Snowbird.” Since that time, Murray has recorded three Christmas albums, each soothing, unassuming celebrations of the holiday. For this two-CD collection, Murray has gone back into her own vaults and dusted off some of her personal favorites from past albums and tied them up in tinsel and a big red bow. But she didn’t just rely on her existing catalog, instead heading into the studio to record some new material, giving old standards like “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas,” “Let It Snow,” and a well-chosen medley of children’s holiday songs her same straightforward approach. While there are few surprises under this tree, it’s nice to have some traditions that you can count on, and Murray’s warm heart and steady voice is one of them. Also on board for this sleigh ride is the prestigious London Symphony Orchestra, which is featured on six songs, including “Silent Night,” “Away in the Manger,” and “Winter Wonderland.” –Jaan Uhelszki

    I have always loved Anne Murray. I have three of her albums, including this one of course. I have “Hippo in my Tub,” “Croonin'” and “What a Wonderful Christmas,” her Best album. She picked some great carols for this album too. For those of you that don’t know, “Away in a Manger,” has three melodies, and on this album she sings each verse with a different melody. My favorite song on the entire album, I’d have to say is “Christmas Wishes,” I wonder if she wrote that song. In such a cruel world with racial bigotry, crime, poverty, and hunger, and polution, I very much agree with that song.

    I’ve grown so tired of commercial “Christmas” music — secular only, and interpreted by the “artist-du-jour” beyond recognition. This collection, however, was just what I hoped Anne Murray would do — a nice blend of sacred and secular, and also done more true to the original style than I’ve heard in years. And, surprise of surprises, she actually sings more than the “first verse” of each song! Add Anne’s fabulous voice, and I couldn’t ask for more — I won’t have to turn the radio on at all, next Christmas!
