Frangoulis’ album opens with the upbeat and cheery “Jingle Bells” and it is followed by “All Creatures of Our God and King,” where he collaborates with such artists as George Perris, Julie Zorrilla, Jorge Calandrelli and The Little Musicians Choir.
It continues with “Nature Boy” and “Christmas Mornings,” prior to delivering a nostalgic and warm version of the classic “White Christmas.” Jorge Calandrelli joins Frangoulis for a duet on “Smile,” while “What Child Is This” is simply beautiful.
