Album Review

The Burns Sisters (Jeannie, Annie and Marie) have always made light, ethereal and transcendent music with little more than light musical backing framing their exquisite vocals. This time the ladies take on ten tunes, both old and new, in the holiday tradition. Kicking off with Marie's "Songs We Love" — a song filled with rich imagery and a chorus that's catchy as can be — the sisters turn in first-rate versions of ancient chestnuts like "O Come O Come Emmanuel," "Golden Cradle," "Silent Night," and a medley of "What Child Is This" and "Greensleeves." The holiday spirit also extends to a more world music view of things with the inclusion of "Shaloo Shalom Y'rushalayim," "Come Come," and the closing "Tibetan Prayer for Peace," which dovetails nicely into Annie Burns' "This Christmas," featuring lead vocals by the sister's own children — a nice full-circle touch to this enchanting little disc.
