AllMusic Review by

Benson's Essence of Christmas delivers just what the title promises, collecting holiday favorites performed by inspirational artists. Commissioned's "Joy," Carman's "Our Blessed Savior Has Come" and Verness Mitchell's "Silent Night" are among the album's highlights, and performances from Albertina Walker, Clifton Davis, Billy Gaines and Kingdom complete this spiritually-minded Christmas collection.
