#3 Favorite Christmas CD: Home for Christmas by Amy Grant

Amy Grant has a beautiful voice. She's the only Christian singer that I really enjoy. It's like she was born to sing Christian music, including Christmas carols. Traditional, classic, contemporary, she does justice to them all, making every carol she sings a memorable one that you want to hear over and over again.

Grant has several Christmas CDs. I like the way she mixes the older traditional carols, with more "choir" type pieces, and throws in some jazzy modern carols as well. She puts a good mix on all of them. A Christmas Album (released 1983) and A Christmas to Remember (released 1999) are both very good, but my favorite is Home for Christmas (released 1992).

Here is the play list for Home for Christmas:
  1. Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

  2. It's the Most Wonderful Time Of the Year

  3. Medley: Joy To the World/For Unto Us a Child Is Born

  4. Breath Of Heaven (Mary's Song)

  5. O' Come All Ye Faithful

  6. Grown-Up Christmas List

  7. Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree

  8. Winter Wonderland

  9. I'll Be Home For Christmas

  10. The Night Before Christmas

  11. Emmanuel, God With Us

  12. Jesu, Joy Of Man's Desiring
You can hear short clips of each of them here.

I just pinched your picture for a blog post on the same album. I agree with you that it is really a great one.
