This is a wonderful selection of familiar Christmas songs and some not so familiar. A very worthwhile purchase for the season

Whilst Katherine has a beautiful voice she is totally inept at singing Xmas music especially the selections she chose for this cd. It didn't help that the recording engineer had a bad day and screwed up half the tracks. At 34 min. duration it was a bad call.

Lovely and pure, a wonderful Christmas album from a gifted voice Oct. 30 2012
By Storylover - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Katherine Jenkins is in magnificent voice for these beautiful and traditional interpretations of Christmas favorites. Her lovely rounded mezzo is clear and pure, and the orchestra is full and warm. Together, they envelop you in a holiday feeling suitable for cozy evenings by the fire with a cup of hot chocolate and a good book. Her O Come O Come Emmanuel is especially lovely, and I was delighted to see the John Rutter piece "I Wish You Christmas" included. All in all, a very enjoyable experience, recommended for lovers of neo-classical Christmas music.

Welcome Christmas with a new and wonderful album Oct. 30 2012
By dellinoHIo - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
No matter how many Christmas albums you have, buy one more. Better still order gifts for everyone who loves Christmas. Without a doubt, Katherine Jenkins has nailed it. It is intimate, traditional, contemporary and very personal with her touch of a childhood song. Her range is amazing and her interpretation reaches new heights with this recording. Her songs range from a velvet touch, to a clever "Santa Baby" to a spiritual celebration. This album is a must for all Katherine Jenkins fans and a magical introduction to her new USA fans. Keep Christmas year round with this beautiful album. Well done.

Perfectly named album from one of world's most glorious voices Oct. 30 2012
By DJRiter - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
"This Is Christmas"-A more perfect name couldn't have been chosen for this wonderful album from Welsh mezzo-soprano superstar Katherine Jenkins. The combination of her glorious, inspiring voice and rich orchestrations combine to create an album that vividly illustrates, through music, all that is special about Christmas. With a perfect blend of contemporary and religious selections you are transported to the joy, the warmth, the majesty and the glory of Christmas. "Hark, The Herald Angels Sing" showcases the strength and range of Katherine's magnificient voice; her rendition of "Santa Baby" has a sassy, at times breathless, charm that brings a smile each time you listen; "Sleep Quietly My Jesus" resonates with a soft, pure innocence; and of course, the Katherine Jenkins/Placido Domingo duet of "Come What May" from Baz Lurhman's Moulin Rouge is outstanding!!! For me, however, there is just something about "I Wish You Christmas" that makes it THE standout song of the album, it's as though Katherine is sending her personal holiday greeting to each and every fan, her personality and love evident in every note. "This Is Christmas" is THE Christmas album to have this year, from an artist who obviously delights in sharing her God-given talent and joy of music with the world.

Disappointed Dec 2 2012
By loripori - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I'm a big fan of Katherine Jenkins. I was really looking forward to owning this CD. Her voice is as beautiful as ever, but the song selection on this CD is horrible. There are a few nice songs, but many of them are boring with unimaginative arrangements. I'd recommend spending your money elsewhere.

Wait for it!! Dec 2 2012
By Hatter - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I love her voice, but this is the last time I buy one of her albums as soon as it is released. I lost count of how many different versions she released of her "Believe" album, and already there are three different versions of this album out. There is this version, the Deluxe Version (which includes The Wexford Carol and In the Bleak Midwinter), and Amazon has offered a version with two bonus tracks (O Holy Night with Nathan Pacheco and some song I've already forgotten). My advice is if you want to buy one of her albums, wait at least six months after the first release so you can decide which version you would most like to own. This is a really crappy way to treat your fans, and is the reason I dropped my rating of this album from three stars to two.

For music, beauty is always in the ear of the beholder, and there is no other genre of music where I am as particular as I am about Christmas music. I want the music to be beautiful, inspiring, and to reflect my Christmas values and memories. Clearly an impossible task.

The most played song on my iPod is "I Believe" with Andrea Boccelli and Katherine Jenkins which was first released on his Christmas album. I think "O Holy Night" with Nathan Pacheco and Katherine Jenkins is currently the 14th most played song on my iPod. I wanted this album to be filled with selections as beautiful and inspiring as those two, so I was bound to be disappointed:) In my opinion, there is nothing on this album which approaches the beauty of either of those songs (unless you buy the Deluxe version which includes "O Holy Night"). I am strongly biased towards Sacred Christmas music, so the secular songs just bore me. With one exception (O Come, O Come, Emmanuel), even the sacred music was just OK.

I am a huge fan of Katherine Jenkins' music, but for me the music on this album just rates three stars. The merchandising of the product deserves negative stars and I hope everyone involved in that process receives lumps of coal for Christmas!
