Ave Maria: Christmas Favorites is a fine Christmas record, comprised of traditional carols and holiday songs as performed by the Vienna Boys Choir, Placido Domingo and Mario Lanza, among others. It's a strong showcase for their vocal talents and the sound is grandly orchestral, ideal for listeners who like their Christmas records to lean toward the traditional.
