Come Darkness, Come Light: Twelve Songs of Christmas, Mary Chapin Carpenter


Finally, a Christmas album worth listening to all year long. When Mary Chapin Carpenter set out to create Come Darkness, Come Light, she took a far different approach to recording a holiday album than most artists do. Rather than simply lending her voice to time-worn Christmas standards, Mary Chapin wrote her own set of heartfelt songs which explore the many meanings and emotions that Christmas evokes in each of us. These songs, mixed with a few hand-picked gems from other writers and rarely heard traditional tunes, will speak directly to the hearts of all Mary Chapin Carpenter fans. These are not merely holiday songs, they are simply great Mary Chapin Carpenter songs, both warm and intimate. And while they artfully capture the spirit of the season, this is a rare Christmas album that doesn't feel like it needs to be kept on the shelf between New Year's and Thanksgiving. With stellar support from longtime musical partners Jon Carroll (piano) and co-producer John Jennings (guitars), Mary Chapin's voice goes down as warmly as hot cider on a cold winter's night.

Christmastide, Jessye Norman


In a touching note she prepared for her new Christmas album, soprano Jessye Norman recalls her childhood in Augusta, Ga., where she appeared annually in the church pageant and caroled till dawn off the back of a huge lumber truck. "Donald Fraser," she writes, "has given us more sophisticated arrangements than we sang on the back of the lumber truck." Indeed he has, and that's the problem with "Christmastide." Jessye Norman boasts the most majestic voice of our day, yet she also has a marvelous gift for intimate communication; she has it in her to make the most special of all diva Christmas. Boston Globe

A New Thought for Christmas, Melissa Etheridge


What if someone made a Christmas album for everybody else? That's exactly what Melissa Etheridge has done. Working alongside her producer David Cole, Melissa's songs celebrate a spiritual time of year where people can rejoice in their traditional, or non-traditional ways, and celebrate a winter solstice filled with love and peace. This ten song album has newly composed songs such as "Ring The Bells," "Light A Light," and "It's Christmas Time" interspersed with traditional holiday standards such as "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" and "Blue Christmas." This album begs the question, "If we're all talking about peace on earth, what if we all concentrated on peace on earth and made it happen?" Amazon
