Review

On her seventh Christmas collection, songstress {$Anne Murray} croons her way through some of the season's most beloved songs. Released in her 63rd year, {^Anne Murray's Christmas Album} (which features five new recordings and ten previously released tracks) rivals holiday compilations from artists half the Canadian songbird's age. Classic numbers such as {&"Joy to the World"} and {&"Silver Bells"} sound as if they were written with no other artist in mind but {$Murray}. On the latter, the singer, backed by a heavenly vocal choir and a silky orchestra, offers up a delightful reading of an ear-pleasing composition that has become as much a part of Christmas as a glass of eggnog and a fire crackling in the hearth. {$Murray} gets in the holiday spirit as she struts her way through a jangly version of {&"Winter Wonderland"} and later lilts beautifully on a soul-piercing cover of {&"Silent Night."} An aching rendition of {&"Blue Christmas"} finds {$Murray}, in a voice as delicate as freshly fallen snow, warming the listener's heart while she gently breaks it at the same time. Curling piano licks bathed in satiny strings float softly around {$Murray}'s vocals. Guests on the album include fellow Canadians {$Michael Bublé} and {$Diana Krall}. ~ Todd Sterling, All Music Guide
