Christmas with Placido Domingo is a wonderful record, but not for the reasons you may expect. Sure, Domingo is blessed with a heavenly tenor voice, as anyone familiar with his operatic career will readily tell you. What Christmas reveals is that soaring tenor can be used not only on traditional, classic material, but on contemporary tunes like "White Christmas" and "I'll Be Home for Christmas," and work just as well. The result is a terrific holiday record that won't only appeal to his diehard following, but for any fan of superb holiday music.
