Album Review

An A Cappella Christmas features the A Cappella Angels performing 14 holiday favorites. Some of the featured songs include "Deck the Halls," "O Come All Ye Faithful," "Silent Night," "We Wish You a Merry Christmas," "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen," and many more. There are a few obscure songs here such as "Coventry Carol" and "Chanuka, Oh Chanuka" that may surprise you. For the most part, though, the A Cappella Angels stick to the longtime favorites, making this an easy album to enjoy, particularly if you like a cappella music.

Customer Reviews

Absolutely Brilliant.

For anyone looking for a holiday album that doesn’t sound like a holiday album your wait is over. Most holiday music strays off the path because of two major errors either the production is too deferential and traditional or the production tries to be too modern. Sappy and syrupy songs result. The Angels have a major leg up as they have stripped out most of the fluff and nonsense by going with just the human voice. No swing band accomplyment, no fill in by the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra or the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, no special guest appearance by U2, just unvarnished human voices singing in harmony. From the very first cut you are presented with the power of these voices. The opening note is delivered in a clear, high powerful way. At first it a solo note that is quickly repeated and refrained by the other voices. It is delivered like a quick blow to the solar plexus. From there the song races along driven by a gospel / soul sensibility mix with more than a little jazz. The blending and counter punctualities of the voices drive the song along with an almost reckless pace. “Angels on High” has always been a happy and cheerful song but the Angels take it to a completely different place. There is dynamism to the song that is missing in the more traditional interpretations. The rest of the album follows the introductory song in much the same manner. From “Go Where I Send Thee” a gospel rocker done to perfection to “Chanukah, oh Chanukah” each song is a bright shining gem. All benefit from an ethos of clean production values. The voices are in top form and the blending of the voices is spot on. It is a shame that the A Cappella Angels did not return to this field to present even more songs in this vein. Much holiday music is unadventurous sticking to trite, tried and true formulas. Very seldom do performers actually try something new or challenge our expectations. This is such an album. If you only buy one Christmas Album this year make it this one.

O Come, O Come Emmanuel by a Cappella

I really like this version of O Come, O Come Emmanuel. I used it everyday during advent after saying the prayers with my advent wreath.
