After listening to CHRISTMAS WORSHIP, even the most cynical anti-Teshites might be hard pressed to deny that the new age superstar produces some of the most accessible and finely crafted pop available. Less a straight holiday album and more a combination Christmas/praise-and-worship record, the disc offers creative interpretations of several chestnuts and a generous helping of the same CCM fare Tesh explored on A DEEPER FAITH.
Like several of John Tesh's previous albums, CHRISTMAS WORSHIP includes a number of surprisingly strong vocal performances, most notably on the inspirational power ballad "This Is Your Gift," which recalls PIANO MAN-era Billy Joel. The rest of the album casts a wide stylistic net, featuring everything from a version of "Joy To The World" that glides over Paul Oakenfold-esque dance beats, to an interesting spoken-word piece consisting of a September 11th-related first-person essay. Though listeners looking for a traditional, light-hearted family Yuletide album may want to shop elsewhere, fans searching for a deeper holiday meaning will find a lot to explore and enjoy on CHRISTMAS WORSHIP.

Reviews - What do customers think about Christmas Worship (CD & DVD)?
Just the ticket for that Christmas spirit... Dec 8, 2004
I had resisted getting this Cd for a couple of years. I love John Tesh's music and I wanted to hear him do more original material....but I finally broke down and bought "Christmas Worship." What a surprise! the original songs are wonderful and the arrangements of familiar Christmas Carols are fresh and lyrical without descending into the realms of elevator musak. Mix that with some of the best 'new ' worship songs; 'Hungry', 'We Fall Down', 'Awesome God' then add in the bonus DVD which is a kind of "Christmas in July" experience and you have great music at a good price in a package that makes a wonderful gift to assist loved ones to get into the Christmas spirit in style.
Great music and wonderful scenary Jan 16, 2004
Pleasantly surprised by the inclusion of a DVD in addition to the CD. DVD is beautifully done and adds an lasting dimension to the music. The best new spiritual music for 2003 Christmas season.
John Tesh is Mr. Christmas! Nov 11, 2003
I've always loved John Tesh's Christmas CD's. They're the ones I play most during the holidays. Just classic and so fitting during Christmas every year. So I was happy to hear that he had a new one out. It's a lot different than his past Christmas CD's but I still love it. And best of all, to my surprise there was a DVD included. A wonderful surprise. I decided to take a peek at the DVD which is called Christmas in Positano. I had been to Italy with my husband and was curious to see what Christmas was like in Positano. Well, there was no snow but it was still so beautiful. My favorite songs are Carol of the Bells and It Wouldn't Be Christmas Without You. I really liked This is Your Gift too. It's great to have new Christmas songs. But I loved the new arrangements of the traditional songs, Joy To the World and Hark the Herald Angels sing too. I've decided to buy a couple more to give away as gifts. I might have to give them early though so my friends can play them throughout the holidays as well. Thanks John for making my holidays that much nicer.
