AllMusic Review by

Many may know Mason Williams as a composer and recording artist through his instrumental hit Classical Gas, which he also remade with Mannheim Steamroller. Now he's created A Gift of Song, an awe-inspiring mix of seasonal standards and orginals. His guitar talent shines through on reworked versions of "Greensleeves" and "Joy to the World," his brilliance at composing is demonstrated on "Guitar Carol," and his humor comes through with the whimsical "Mistletoe Moustache." Mason Williams returns warmth and the feeling of what music should be about during Christmas and always.
