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
