Best known for her unique interpretations of popular songs, operatic arias and hymns, singer Katherine Jenkins will embrace a new genre this fall when the multi-million selling mezzo-soprano releases her first Christmas album, This is Christmas. This will be the ninth studio album from Jenkins and features 10 newly recorded holiday classics. For this upcoming collection, Jenkins unique vocals can be heard singing traditional holiday tunes from around the world as well as a number of contemporary favorites including "Away In A Manger, " "Hark The Herald Angels Sing, " "Deck The Halls, " and "Come What May, " featuring Placido Domingo. "These holiday songs bring back such wonderful memories for me of times spent with family and loved ones, " says Jenkins. "I have always hoped that one day I d have the opportunity to record a Christmas album and I can t wait to share my interpretations of these songs with everyone. "

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!
