I never used to be a great fan of traditional Christmas music, per se, but Diana Ross has made me feel differently.
Late one Christmas Eve a few years ago, I heard a Christmas song by The Supremes on the radio. I've always been a huge Supremes fan, but I had never heard this song before. Not surprisingly, I was immediately enchanted by Diana Ross's voice (backed by the enriching sounds of The Supremes) on this Christmas classic, so I bought "The Supremes Merry Christmas" CD, and I've been enjoying it ever since.
I didn't see this "Christmas in Vienna" concert in 1992 or hear the music when it first appeared, but I recently discovered the CD, and I must say, Diana Ross hasn't lost the Christmas magic in her voice that she first expressed on the aforementioned Supremes album which was recorded in 1965.
Diana Ross's voice seems perfectly suited for traditional Christmas music, and surprisingly (at least for me), she truly sounds incredible with the rich classical orchestrations on the "Christmas in Vienna CD". She more than keeps up with Domingo and Carreras, and lends a magical touch to the lush orchestrations with her velvety-creamy voice.
I know I will enjoy this CD for many a holiday season to come. In fact, I'm sure I'll be listening to it throughout the year whenever I feel the need for a little Christmas in my heart.
The only thing missing on this CD is The Supremes, which would have embellished Diana's voice and made the music even more magical than it is. Diana Ross is still Supreme, whether she wants to be a Supreme or not.

Of all the Christmas in Vienna concerts that Placido Domingo has released since he inaugrated the tradition in 1992, this first one is just about the finest concert of the series. This was because the producers of the concert thoughtfully planned and produced this concert, allowing the concert to speak on its artistic merits rather than for the sake of crossover. Domingo, Carreras and Diana Ross are all on top form, in glorious voice, interacting each other and shining individually in their solos. The sublime backing of the Vienna Symphony Orchestra conducted by Vjekoslav Sutej, and the Gumpoldskirchner Children's Choir only enhance the festivities.
There is a wide range of Christmas music presented in this concert, from traditional carols, such as O Come All Ye Faithful (sung in English and Latin) and O Holy Night, to the cosmopolitan pop songs such as White Christmas and It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year. Here, the three artists are in glorious voice, accompanied by tasteful arrangements by film composer Lalo Schifrin. Each of the artists shine individually and in tandem with each other, and you can almost sense that they are wooing each other with their contributions. Domingo and Carreras are, of course, superb in their solos and duets (listen to their fine duet of O Come All Ye Faithful, in Latin and in English) and in the new compositions, The Gift of Love and the rarely-heard Navidad. They are just as charismatic as Diana Ross on Amazing Grace and If We Hold On Together. Most importantly, you can feel the sense of shared respect in the two closing ensemble numbers.

HASH(0x9cdd4a38) out of 5 stars Scaling new heights Jan. 1 2001
By Eso - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
On the soundtrack to a PBS TV Special that coincided with the Christmas Season of 1992, this set reached the the Top 10 that Christmas in several European countries. La Ross, ever able to meld her voice around difficult arrangements and changing styles,once again holds her own with two opera stars.
The novel "Upside Down" seemed challenging enough; Ross was able to hit the notes, while all the while adjusting the speed of her soft and airy voice to adjust to the tempo of the track. Even Ross' critics who contend her voice is too light and airy, or that she is one to emphasize style over substance in her pop work would have to concede that neither is sacrificed for the other here. Both elements are at play in a presentation full of grace and finnesse-which is what such a degree of a great performance would require.
Here, she shines on solos "Amazing Grace" and "Ave Maria". "Ave Maria" is notoriously difficult to deliver-especially in a dead language. Ostensibly, "Ave Maria" is in Latin. Thrown in for good measure is her then-current British chart entry-that is, "If We Hold On Together" from "The Land Before Time", a huge hit in Japan years earlier that contains all the majestic power of an opera.
Speaking of scaling majestic heights, the cut spent two years in the top-twenty in Japan and subsequently was certified quadruple-platinum and was at the time of its pinnacle the best-selling single by a foreign artist in Japan.

Very very quality album, the First in the Placido Domingo series of Christmas Concerts in Vienna, recorded in December 22, 1992,
All singers are fabulous but the Tenors are like V12s + Diana more like a 4 cylinder but she manages to project enough to come thru with Placido and Jose, This album and the one produced on 10/10/96 with Ying Huang and the one recorded on 12/21/97 with Sarah Brightman, are in my opinion are the 5 stars of the Christmas in Vienna series,

HASH(0xa15ff1a4) out of 5 stars A Diva and Two Tenors! Dec 20 2014
By Davey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I remember watching this lovely concert for the first time just before Christmas in 1992 and I was in awe. It was probably the last time I had felt the Christmas spirit and now listening to it again 21 years later has brought back some of that nostalgia for me. The concert at large was quite lovely but if I had to pick a song for each I'd say I loved Jose Carreras' Ave Maria (Schubert) with the lovely dissolve shots of the Wiener tram running in front of the Burg theater and Jose Carreras and the lovely kinderchor singing this most lovely tribute to Mary, Jesus's Mother. I'd say Placido's Ave Maria (Mascagni) really stood out for me and Diana Ross's If We Hold On Together really captivated me. I wish we could have such concerts today! I only wish the released dvd would contain all of the selections from this most beautiful concert.

HASH(0x9d9e0458) out of 5 stars A Superb Holiday Ensemble! Dec 20 2010
By L. Boki - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In celebration of her 30th Anniversary in the music industry, Ross released several special projects including a 20th Anniversary Salute to her iconic, "Lady Sings the Blues", in a pay-per-view and CD special entitled: "Stolen Moments: The Lady Sings Jazz and Blues",a boxed set "Forever, Diana" (and a single disc, the #1 International smash, "One Woman"), and two holiday albums, one solo, "A Very Special Season" released internationally only and this, "Christmas in Vienna" which was a PBS special in 1992 and then commercially released as a CD/DVD in 1993.

After the stunning pay-per-view concert, "Stolen Moments", Diana's fan base had to be more than complete. It was a live taping at the old Ritz in New York in December of 1992 and then much to their surprise, the PBS special, "Christmas in Vienna" w/The Two Tenors, Carreras and Domingo. The project was a global smash hitting the summit across Europe and the states. There was even a near Top 10 European single version of "If We Hold on Together" extracted from the concert.

While her fan base, anticipated how Diana would blend with two renowned classical singers, they need not have been concerned because it proved a formidable team that ended up touring Asia and Europe. It culminated in 3 different television specials, "Christmas in Vienna" shown globally. And "Super Concert" with a Budapest television special and different songs and a Japanese television special.

The album sold over a million copies internationally and added great lustre to Ross' wonderful legacy.

Musically, the songs were mostly traditional holiday fare with the exception being a thrilling version of Ross singing "Amazing Grace" and the aforementioned "If We Hold on Together".

It remains an annual airing and return to the classical/holiday charts as a catalog title.
