Singing traditional Christmas songs with dignity and feeling, this Nat King Cole holiday album gloriously captures the spirit of the season. Without fireworks, improvisations, catchy rhythms, or unusual variations, Cole gives us songs full of love in his relaxed and unpretentious style. The Christmas Song written by Mel Torme has always been Cole’s biggest Christmas hit, beautifully sung to an accompaniment of piano and strings. O Holy Night, with a 27-string orchestra, maintains its sense of quiet awe, instead of becoming loudly triumphant (as it is in many other recordings), while Adeste Fidelis, sung partly in Latin, speaks to the listener on a personal level and invites him/her to come, let us adore him, instead of demanding it.

This was a gift to my husband for his Christmas birthday. fortunately I own an old much used record player which still works. I can not believe it has taken me so many years to finally get this album. The Christmas Song - is of course the song I was most familiar with since it is played constantly during Holiday time. I found that I really loved hearing all the songs and this is one album you can listen to over and over again and never get tired of. I highly recommend this album to anyone who truly appreciates good music.
