Album Review

Judy Collins has enjoyed a long, popular career as a folk musician, so it is nice to see her flex her musical muscles and attempt some holiday favorites. Despite a few hammy moments, All on a Wintry Night is a first-class Christmas album, filled with beautiful performances and understated arrangements. Collins has a wonderful voice, and puts it to good use on tracks like "The Blizzard," where she manages to capture the magic and beauty of a snow storm in a simple piano ballad. She takes on lesser known carols such as "In the Bleak Midwinter" and "Wexford Carol," and puts them among some of the better known favorites. The album does take a very Christian point of view, and may put off those who do not share her religious viewpoints. And her spoken-word intro to "Away in a Manger" is simply too cheesy, detracting from an otherwise good song. But these complaints are easy to overlook if only because of the quality of the music. In a music scene glutted with terrible Christmas albums, it is nice to see one artist do it right and really put her heart into the project. Any fan of good Christmas music will probably enjoy this unique album.

Customer Reviews

Cool, crisp... hauntingly effective

Collin's voice is in rare form on this excellent album. This album heralds the true spirit and feeling of the holidays. If you are tired of Jingle Bells and yet another White Christmas, buy this respectfull offering to not only the consecration of Christmas, but the nature of Winter and its aesthetic reverberations.

A Truly Beautiful Voice !

A wonderful album by one of the best voices of the 20th century! With both familiar& less traditional songs her always evocative voice truly captures the wondrous feel of the season like few others. Her rendition of Silent Night gives me goose bumps every time I hear it.

Singer Judy Collins was, along with Joan Baez, one of the two major interpretive singers to emerge from the folk revival of the late '50s and early '60s. Like Baez, she began singing traditional folk songs, then moved on to popularize the work of contemporary singer/songwriters, even writing her own songs occasionally. Unlike Baez, she used her classical music training to evolve into being a singer of art songs and show tunes, sometimes employing semi-classical arrangements. In a career that began...
