This slice of Christmas cheer sees a range of gospel artists and groups get together to put their stamp on some well-known carols under the auspices of Nashville producers Nathan M Young and Derrick Lee. Ricky Dillard and The New Generation Chorale are first to step up to the stage with their version of "Joy To The World!" which sets the scene for a handful of successful high octane Christmas adaptations including a bluesy "Go, Tell It On The Mountain" (Rev Lawrence Thomison), "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing" (Music City Mass Choir) and "It Came Upon A Midnight Clear" (Kevin Davidson & The Voices). Unfortunately, an over-abundance of slower numbers such as schmaltzy versions of "Angels We Have Heard On High" and "Away In A Manger" seem more like an exercise in vocal acrobatics than anything artistically worthwhile and subdue the pace of this otherwise stirring release.
