Excellent Chistmas cd!! Mar 31, 2006
It is hard to find great Cristmas cd's This one is on my top 10!! excellent original Christmas music!! I gave it 4 stars because there one or two songs that I don't care for but because of the quality of music, has several songs that are new. This cd is truly inspired with Christmas meaning and feeling unlike many Christmas CD's. I have never heard Point of Grace prior to this, Wow these ladies can make music!! The majority of songs on this album point to the real meaning of Christmas in this beautifully crafted and produced album. Extra points for originality and that It is a must have!! You'll be will be very suprised.
a very pleasant cd for holiday listening Oct 29, 2005
I love Christmas music. I bought this disc on a whim - good choice. It is a very simple, relaxing holiday album. The harmonies are smooth and the arrangements are new but familiar. Definitely a keeper for the collection. I also picked up POG's newer Christmas album - also good, but I like this one better.
A very modern Christmas album Jan 12, 2005
Beginning with a very brief (and barely recognizable) cover of Joy to the world, Carl Marsh's complex and dramatic orchestral arrangements are the distinctive feature of this album. This orchestra is not lush - it rocks. The beautiful harmonies of the four ladies (Denise, Shelley, Heather and Terry) are sometimes near to being drowned out by the orchestra, yet somehow they never are.
Their harmonies combine with the orchestra to best effect on the old classics, which sound fresh and vibrant in such a setting. However many versions you've heard of Angels we have heard on high, Let it snow let it snow let it snow, Sleigh ride, Carol of the bells, What child is this, O holy night, O come O come Emmanuel, Santa Claus is coming to town, Jingle bells and Coventry carol, Point of Grace and their orchestra are different, even where (as on O holy night), the orchestra is restrained - this merely heightens the effect of the orchestra on the other tracks.
There are five original songs, all of which are magnificent, for which lyrics are provided in the accompanying booklet. One other song, How great our joy, was new to me when I bought this. I haven't heard it anywhere else but it's a great song.
If you are looking for a traditional Christmas album, look elsewhere - but if you are looking for something modern and distinctive, this may interest you.
Point of Grace's "A Christmas Story" Dec 5, 2004
I have to admit I'm a sucker for Christmas music. However, one CD that gets repeated on my CD player at any time of the year is this one by the extremely talented group POG. The instrumentals are beautiful and when accompanied by the women's vocals, provide emotional impact at every listen. The songs dealing directly with our Savior's birth are vivid reminders of why we are celebrating the holiday in the first place without being preachy. The secular songs showcase the fun and joy of being together with family and friends. Overall, I think this is POG's best work.
Gorgeous CD Oct 3, 2004
This is one of the only CDs at my house that everyone likes...it has jazzy tunes, pop tunes, AND beautiful classical pieces. Most are well-known Christmas songs (with signature Point of Grace embellishments), but there are a few original melodies, too. We love it so much that we popped it in the CD player as we were driving through 105* weather in Missouri this summer!!
