Various Artists: ‘O Come Emmanuel’ album review

If you didn’t know, most, if not all, Christmas albums are recorded either in the summer, or usually not when the “weather outside is frightful.” Consider this, when listening to O Come Emmanuel: Carols Of Christmas, and you will be all the more impressed with this collection, produced by Andrew Greer. Each song on the album will instantly transport the listener in a cozy wintry scene, whether curling up beside a December fire or sitting in the sand, along the toe-lapping surf. In addition to the stunning instrumental orchestrations (of particular note, an arrangement of “What Child Of This,” featuring Ron Block of Allison Krauss’ Union Station), highlights include a touching duet with Greer and Lindsay McCaul on “Different Kind Of Christmas,” and “Silent Night” with Dr. Gregg Bunn on organ.
