A Christmas Album

Amy Grant

Amy Grant’s first Christmas album is not only one of the best recordings of her career, it’s easily one of the best contemporary Christmas collections available. Grant’s Christian beliefs have been incorporated into her music for years, and maybe it’s the artistic translation of the depth of her faith that makes these songs so inspiring. “Emmanuel” and “Angels We Have Heard on High” have Grant’s vocals soaring, especially on the sustained chorus of the latter. Her country roots show nicely in “Tennessee Christmas,” while “Sleigh Ride” is as fun as it is romantic. “Heirlooms” is particularly poignant—maybe not to the point of “hand me a tissue,” but it’s powerful all the same. A must for fans, and a good holiday addition for those looking for a Christmas record that comes without the cobwebs.
