Excellent Music Collection Dec 04, 2005
I purchased this CD on iTunes and I love it. Martha's CD collection is very tasteful and the music is great background music. I'm not a big fan of Christmas music sung by pop stars, and so I avoid most modern releases, but this CD is all classical. Particularly love the song sung by II Divo and Placido Domingo. This is a classical album sure to please everyone.
When I played it in my car my I got compliments on it. Way to go Martha!!!
One of the best Christmas collections! Feb 06, 2014

I found this on Amazon, wasn't really looking for a Christmas cd just after Christmas, but I saw Martha's name on it and was surprised, not realizing she put out a collection. I bought it used for a great low price, but when I received it I realized what a wonderful bargain I got. The music is just spectacular, if you're looking for more classical selections. This cd would be wonderful for entertaining over the holiday with quiet but classy songs. It's not just for background music though, the selections stand on their own and I found myself really listening to them, even after Christmas. This would be a great gift cd to give over the holidays, a nice idea would be to present it to a hostess of a party, etc., maybe instead of or along with a bottle of wine. My favorite selections on this cd are O Tannenbaum(performed on old fashioned music boxes), Sleigh Ride, Children's Prayer, Silent Night, Waltz of the Flowers, and actually almost all are great. Most are instrumental pieces and are performed with beautiful orchestration and some heavenly choruses. Highly recommended!

Pretty good Christmas CD Dec 12, 2008
Some of the selections on this CD are just lovely - I Saw Three Ships by James Galway, Sleigh Ride, etc., but a few are too "heavy" for my taste. I may be getting fussy about Christmas music in my old age, but I practically run out of stores that feature "dead guys singing" Christmas pop or depressing, somber "Christmas music to slash your wrists to." Give me upbeat Christmas music any day.
