Gill,Vince ~ Breath Of HeavenFollowing The Key, Gill’s hardest country album to date, the Christmas album Breath of Heaven turns so far in the other direction it hardly seems like the same man’s work. Don’t expect steel guitar and fiddles here: This is pure symphonic pop and a kind of ode to the cinematic string arrangements–not of Nashville, but of Nelson Riddle, or the classic seasonal recordings of Bing Crosby. The selection is tasteful if conservative, though Gill sings every chestnut expertly and even digs a bit deeper on the religious material. The only surprise is the Amy Grant-composed title cut, the album’s one undeniably soulful moment. If you’re looking for lush and easy-swinging holiday mood music, brimming with the sentiments of the season, you’ve found it. –Roy Francis Kasten

I love this CD I love this CD. Lots of traditional Christmas music, and a couple newer ones that are just beautiful. I also love Vince’s soft acoustical version of Blue Christmas, a song I never liked by Elvis, but completely different in this rendition. Definitely a Christmas favorite.

This is by far the best Christmas song I have ever heard I heard this song on the radio and didn’t know who was singing it. They only played it a few times during Christmas so I was listening to the words very carefully. I had never heard the song before and didn’t even know the title. I thought “Breath of Heaven ” might be it. I found a web site were I could sample a bit of the song and realized it was Vince Gill. I had to have this CD. This is by far the best Christmas song I have ever heard. Thank you.
