AllMusic Review by

It's unclear whose "Top 25" this is, or what the parameters for making the cut were. But Top 25 Instrumental Christmas is still a satisfactory enough set of standards. Opener "O Holy Night" is stately and reverent, "Hark the Herald Angels Sing" incorporates flute and classical guitar, and "Carol of the Bells" builds in layers from solo piano. The sound here is light FM -- breezy keyboards and adult contemporary texture, just right for background music. On disc two of Top 25 Instrumental Christmas are smooth jazz renderings of "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" and "First Noel."
