Let There Be Light! Jan 24, 2007
Bought the CD for this particular song...just an inspiring and uplifting piece of music. Thank you for such a gift!
What A Way To Catch My Ears Dec 26, 2006
First things first--This is no ordinary Christmas collage. Not just "Breath Of Heaven (Mary's Song)" but, yet another Amy Grant classic, the Chris Eaton penned, "Little Town" are what paces this set well out of the usual and into the realm of extraordinary!!! ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT!!!!
As for Breath Of Heaven, following in the footsteps of Donna Summer and Vince Gill, Point Of Grace's rendition of Amy's now standard anthem is what totally makes the album a class work of art.
Then, even though this album was a great piece, it gets even better. Although quite rare, "Little Town" is certainly given sparkle and verve that only Point Of Grace have purely mastered. Absolutely the gem in this set!!
With the fun, spunky and yet poignant character that this set offers, every Christmas mood is showcased and all with the beautiful harmonies and orchestration that can only be described as graceful. Highlights include "For Unto Us", "It'sThe Most Wonderful Time Of The Year" and "Let There Be Light"
Not as good as 'A Christmas Story' Nov 28, 2005
These ladies have beautiful voices, but I am disappointed by this album. The song selections are trite and the album isn't much of a value at less than 45 minutes long. I prefer the song selection and arrangements of their 1999 Christmas release- it's a unique addition to my Christmas music collection that gets played frequently during the season.
Beautiful Harmony Nov 22, 2005
I don't buy many Christmas CD's, since I only listen to them for about a month out of the year. So if I do buy a Christmas CD, it needs to be very good. The four ladies of Point of Grace showcase their wonderful harmony on "Winter Wonderland." Their version of "Jingle Bells" sounds like something from the big band era with the Andrews sisters. The secular songs are fun, but Point of Grace is a Christian group, and it is on the spiritual songs that they really stand out. "Let There Be Light" is a nice new song with guest vocalist John David Webster. Point of Grace sings an acapella version of "In the First Light." On "Little Town" and "For Unto Us" they set familiar lyrics to unusual melodies. The CD closes with "All Is Well," featuring Heather singing solo and Michael W. Smith on piano. I've always thought that song sounds like a lullaby, but Heather sings it so powerfully. If you're going to get a new Christmas CD this year, do get this one.
More traditional than their other Christmas album Nov 16, 2005
Point of Grace's first Christmas album 'A Christmas Story' hit legendary status. They took traditional songs and reworked them wonderfully. I was expecting something similar with 'Winter Wonderland' but didn't find it. Point of Grace seems to take more of a traditional approach on this album. They have reworked traditional songs but they stay fairly close to the original. The one exception of course is the song entitled "Let There Be Light" which is a new song. It's no secret that the voices of the members of Point of Grace seem to melt into one voice so if traditional Christmas music is your thing you're going to love this cd. If you're looking for more of a departure from the traditional songs you may be a little disappointed the first run through. Give it another listen or two, however, and I think you'll come to enjoy this cd more and more. Christmas music is used for a variety of purposes: to get into the Christmas mood, as background for a Christmas party etc...this cd would work well for all of them. I give this cd 5 stars because of the quality of vocals and songs themselves. These are classic Christmas songs and will be enjoyed by all. Have a very Merry Christmas!
