Gospel Christmas features Jan Harrington performing a total of 14 holiday favorites rooted in the gospel tradition. That, of course, means you won't find "Jingle Bells" or "Frosty the Snowman" here but rather traditional gospel songs like "Go Tell It on the Mountain" and "Good News." Some of the inclusions, such as "Amazing Grace" and "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot," may not seem like obvious holiday songs to you, but they are featured nonetheless and performed with just as much conviction as the other, more Christmas-oriented songs. Overall, this album should surely please those who have come to appreciate Harrington's music as well as those with an appreciation for gospel music.
