Old holiday classics and new, cleverly chosen originals get the full orchestral treatment here, infused with Sarah Brightman's luminous golden voice. Spine-tingling covers of Vince Gill and ABBA songs sit cozily side-by-side with more traditional fare ("Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring," "Ave Maria") on this 2008 holiday release.
