AllMusic Review by

The All Star Classic Christmas Album has a selection of classical Christmas pieces and traditional carols, as performed by such luminaries as Jose Carreras, Cheryl Studer, Kathleen Battle, Sarah Brightman, Anne Sofie von Otter, Bryn Terfel, Kiri Te Kanawa and Placido Domingo. They are supported by such stellar ensembles and conductors as the Choir of Westminster Abbey, John Eliot Gardiner, the Berlin Philharmonic, Simon Preston, and the Vienna Philharmonic, among others. It's the rare classical Christmas album that will appeal both to serious listeners and casual fans.
