This world premiere recording of this Christmas oratorio by Reinhard Keiser (1674-1739) makes available one of the few surviving sacred works by a musician who was highly regarded by his contemporaries, primarily as a composer of operas. Well-known Christmas chorales, opulently scored, with rich polyphony, depict with great delicacy, the scene around the crib at Bethlehem.

Emmylou Harris is an artist with the rare sort of voice that communicates an honest and firmly grounded humanity while possessing a crystalline purity that verges on the angelic. In short, she was a singer born to make a great Christmas album, and in 1979 she did just that with Light of the Stable, in which she fused the high-lonesome traditional sound she'd been exploring on Roses in the Snow and Blue Kentucky Girl with songs that honored the spiritual and emotional roots of the holiday season…

A must-have album for the upcoming Christmas season: "Christmas Concertos" - A stunning new recording of the famous Christmas concertos by Corelli and Locatelli, together with beautiful but lesser-known works presented by Cappella Gabetta. A Christmas album full of atmosphere featuring Christmas concertos by Italian composers. Famous concertos by Corelli, Vivaldi and Locatelli but also rarely heard works by Valentini, Zavateri and Ragazzi that are well worth discovering. A brilliant new recording by the distinguished Baroque ensemble Cappella Gabetta.

Ella Wishes You a Swinging Christmas is a charming, warmly humorous – and yes, swinging – set of classic Christmas tunes. The program is familiar, from bouncy singalongs like "Jingle Bells" to slinky ballads like a downright sexy "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," but Fitzgerald treats each song with exactly as much respect as it deserves…

Air Supply is known worldwide for swooning the ladies off their feet. This time, Hitchcock and Russell are taking the festive route, recording some of the most beloved holiday classics of all time. The production standards and performances are polished and no less than what you'd expect from the duo, but of course this will not appeal to some. It's an easily accessible and enjoyable album for both casual listeners and die-hard fans of the group's output.

Pop, New Age, World Fusion, Holidays | 1:11:34 | Mp3, 320 kbps | 163 MB
Label :Windham Hill Records | Year Of Release :1996

This is a more obvious and typically new age instrumental collection from such usual Windham Hill artists as George Winston, Michael Manring, Liz Story, and Michael Hedges. Alternating between keyboard and guitar-dominated washes of lush but well-crafted, rarely schmaltzy arrangements. Richard Stoltzman's marimba and clarinet-driven "Dona Nobis Pacem" stands out.

Label :Six Degrees Records | Year Of Release :2005

Pop Christmas songs are generally written out of a kind of deliberate nostalgia, appealing to the perceived listener's yearning for a gentler, simpler time when the holiday wasn't besieged by a blitz of ads, airport schedules, and credit card statements, a time when a gentle snowfall, some roasted chestnuts, and a sleigh ride were more than enough for a perfect holiday. The sort of instant nostalgia that is built into the DNA of songs like "White Christmas," "Jingle Bells," and countless other Christmas classics, coupled with the fact that they only appear on the airwaves in the holiday season, giving each listener ample opportunity to add on his own personal memories of past holidays to the song's cache, makes it especially difficult to drastically alter the arrangements of these treasured perennials without sounding glib or gimmicky. Christmas Remixed, Vol. 2, like its predecessor, manages to respectfully recast a dozen of these holiday classics as beat-heavy electronica without destroying much or any of the songs' built-in nostalgia, which is a feat by any measure.
