It's a Wonderful Christmas

It's a Wonderful Christmas

Michael W Smith

$16.99

Cd

It's A Wonderful Christmas features the winning singer-songwriter joining forces with four amazing choirs, among them a 100-voice choir and also a 16-member London boy's choir directed by John Tobin, and a 67-piece orchestra at London's Abbey Road studios. Also featured is a duet with American Idol's Mandisa. As the strings soar and the bells ring, you can almost feel winter's nip in the air and smell the fragrance of pine trees as Smith's music puts you in that holiday mood. Smith revelled in the opportunity to record with a 67-piece orchestra, "The arrangements were great. The room is legendary and the players were unbelievable," he enthuses. In preparing for his new Christmas collection, he wanted to create an album with the lush arrangements and powerful orchestral sounds that he heard listening to his favourite Christmas records as a child. He began putting together a list of his favourite tunes, but in a burst of inspiration soon found he'd written more than enough new material to fill the album. The only cover tune is the timeless standard "What Child is This?" which sounds both familiar yet fresh thanks to Smitty's deft musical reinvention.

:The albums nine original songs and one standard were brought to life by a 67 piece orchestra at Londons famous Abbey Road Studios and beautifully marries Michaels pop sensibilities with his inventive instrumental work and cinematic creativity. A classic in the making Its a Wonderful Christmas is a must-have addition to any Christmas music buyers collection.

Fantastic cd
5 stars By Sarah, Nov 10 2014
This cd is definitely a favourite. Its lyrical melodies with great symphonic arrangements of classic christmas carols alongside some choral pieces create such an atmosphere of grandeur. It truly is another great cd by Michael W Smith.
