This new holiday recording from pianist Paul Cardall is one of his best. He presents an ambient soothing collection of some of my holiday favorites. His version of Bach's "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring" is brilliant. A strumming cello, as though it was a guitar, is so innovative and expressive. "Away in A Manger" slowly builds in its dynamics to a powerful release. We've heard his version of "Silent Night" and "Still Still Still" from THE CHRISTMAS BOX recording but Paul added ambient effects to strengthen the beauty of his previous recorded material. "Il Est Ne, Le Divin Enfant" the french carol grooves but it is very light jazz. It feels like its floating in the air. It's beautiful. The whole cd is wonderful. There is a lot of passion in this recording. I can't think of a better new age christmas recording.....It feels like he merged the style of his HYMNS CD and FAITHFUL.
It is no hidden secret that despite the underrated recognition of this very fine artist, this reviewer has championed on the stellar work of Paul Cardall. And this album gives every reason to continue this trend. While the album focuses on the more well know hymns of Christmas, Cardall takes the time to remind us of the real reason for Christmas. Instead of focusing on the festive aspect, Cardall pays homage to the faithful perspective of the Holidays.

Back in 1997, Paul released the cd The Christmas Box on the Narada label. This particular project effectively intermingled traditional Christmas hymns and carols alongside original compositions. While the spirit of the record was Christmas, it was one of those rare holiday offerings that could be played essentially anytime of the year. It comes with great pleasure that Christmas Hymns Volume 1 continues to hold up this fine reputation.

While the mix of the songs is low key and reverent, it is never dull or boring... Read more
This is far and away my favorite Christmas CD. So gentle, soothing and relaxing that I couldn't bear to pack it up with the rest of the Christmas music. This is one CD I'll leave out to enjoy all year. Five star product.
