Product Description

Product Description

Bringing Josh Groban's majestic yet intimate voice to Christmas music is truly a gift this holiday season. The young adult contemporary star's latest studio album brings together the traditional such as _Silent Night_ with the contemporary such as _I'll Be Home For Christmas_ and the new _Thankful_.

Featuring duets with country music's *Faith Hill* and R and B's *Brian McKnight*, the album's wide appeal promises that a timeless Christmas music classic will be beneath the tree this year.

Groban's previous album, 2006's "Awake", hit #2 on the pop chart and is nearing double-platinum status. 2003's "Closer" #1 on the pop charts and has become certified quadruple-platinum.

The Grammy-nominated, twenty-something, pop-classical phenomenon's fourth studio album is an expertly accomplished entry to the holiday marketplace. Noël tackles the familiar sounds of holiday music with a charmingly eclectic array of guest vocalists and a wide range of material. The songs range from the sacred to the secular, while Groban--buoyed in spots by none other than the London Symphony Orchestra--soars in his duets with Brian McKnight, Faith Hill, and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. There's even a song with a gospel choir directed by Kirk Franklin. Produced yet again by crossover maestro David Foster, the arrangements never overwhelm the songs. Groban's smooth and supple vocals can be hard to categorize--seeing how his range is somewhere in-between a high baritone and a low tenor--but he always finds and emphasizes the emotional core of these songs. And whether they have origins in pop or classical music seems not to matter. The addition of messages from troops stationed in Iraq on top of "I'll Be Home for Christmas" is undeniably heart-wrenching, while the album's highlight is its most spare song, "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear," which finds Groban alone at his piano, sounding very much like some kind of angel. --Mike McGonigal

This is the quintessential Christmas album! The song choices are perfect, a balance of sacred and secular, the guest performers are incredible, the musicianship unparalleled. And then, of course, there is the small matter of THE VOICE! Josh's voice is a perfect blend of smooth and stirring, strong and tender, powerful yet caressing. If you only buy one Christmas album this year.....make it this one!

This is one of the most beautiful sounding albums for the Christmas season with a great variety of music. I am impressed by each track, but special mention should be given to "Thankful", not only for the words but the expressive way Josh sings it. It sounds as though it comes straight from his heart.
I bought several copies of this album to give as gifts, including one for an elderly lady who was facing Christmas alone for the first time. "Thankful" was the track I wanted her to listen to and tears from the beauty of it streamed down her face.
One of Josh's best!

Enfin ! ça faisait longtemps que je l'attendais et je ne suis pas déçue. Tout ce qu'on peut désirer d'un album de Noël : de la très belle musique et surtout la voix sublime de Josh. De quoi passer une très belle saison des fêtes...

Reprise Records brings to the table another holiday treat with "NOEL" --The Holidays are fast upon us and you know what that means what CDs we will want to purchase and stuff in our Christmas stockings this year --- With so many available, it is hard to decide but let us spend the holidays with our favorite vocalist of the season Josh Groban --- Veering between pop and lush classical arrangements, this album delivers a delightful variety of delights with some Yuletide favorites --- With great musician accompaniment and rich vocal duets, this is sure to become a holiday favorite.

Joshua Winslow Groban (born February 27, 1981) is a Grammy-nominated American singer/songwriter known for his mature and lyrical baritone voice. He has concentrated his career so far mostly in concert singing and recordings, although he has stated that he wishes to pursue musical theatre in the future --- Some of Groban's musical influences have been Radiohead, Paul Simon, Sting, Peter Gabriel, and Björk --- He says he is able to look up to anyone, musically, who has pushed the boundaries and stepped outside of the box. As for vocal influences, "anyone who told a story with their songs," including Mandy Patinkin, Klaus Nomi, George Hearn, and Luciano Pavarotti -- Josh currently resides in Los Angeles, California --- (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

The people here at Amazon and Reprise have requested a review on one of my picks for the season --- so here goes, check out the track listings below and note they are all prearranged for your enjoyment --- a baker's dozen of holiday favorites and original Christmas songs, the Josh Groban Christmas is a mostly festive, entertaining sing along collection tailor made for all the relatives.

Music is fine (cd is intact) but the cases were broken. I transferred labels and cd to an older cd case to compensate. Use better packaging and care next time!
