Product Description

Product Description

Amazon.ca

Canadian Bruce Cockburn's understated musical and vocal strengths belie his more ardent political folk-pop in a career that never found a wider U.S. audience. Too bad, because Cockburn deftly mixes folk, rock, country, gospel, and international music without making it seem forced or found. On Christmas the singer takes artistic and poetic license to rearrange "Silent Night," "Adeste Fidelis," and other more reverent standards alongside "The Huron Carol," "Go Tell It on the Mountain," and "Mary Had a Baby," another beautiful gospel tune often overlooked by more mainstream singers. Cockburn's quiet intensity ignites most of these--and his liner notes are brief but poignant and informative. --Martin Keller --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Audio CD
This christmas album by Cockburn, is a lovely balnced collection of seasonal tunes, and is presented in such a way as to kindle memories of christmas past and those to come. There is a timeless quality to the selections chosen and a certain amount of surprise as each is presented. This is an album to anticipate in advance of both the winter and the christmas season, for many seasons to come.

Bruce Cockburn - ardent political activist and Christian makes a Christmas album that is intense in faith and delivery. Great album with fantastic playing. I hate to use cliché terms but the music seems reimagined with him playing. Cockburn is a staple at our house during Christmas.

Several of my adult children have owned this 20 year-old album!
This year I finally decided their parents needed to have this in their home.
So I put on face book that I had ordered it, with the comment, "guess who I have in my backyard this Christmas?"
We do love it as does our whole family, I also ordered the DVD documentary which I wish would have had more variety in it's footage of concerts but it is also well done! It made a good gift for one of those adult children :)

It has been a long time since I have heard such sentiment sung in the songs that Bruce Cockburn sings.
I really enjoyed it and even though it was a christmas CD. Very emotional one at that. Thank you
