Reviews For The Glorious Sound of Christmas By Artist Eugene Ormandy, Robert Page, Temple University Concert Choir & The Philadelphia Orchestra

  • Great recording!!

    I had this album once on cassette, but now I have it on compact disc. Great way to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ at home with this album. It sounds radiant in digital stereo, but if you have this album on vinyl or tape, enjoy it either way, but to listen this album in digital, you're getting true concert hall reproduction without distortion, provided that the treble is turned all the way up and the bass at mid position on your stereo amp.
  • THE music of Christmas from my childhood

    This was the only Christmas album we had when I was growing up and I always loved it. To me it is the standard by which all other Christmas music is compared. Hadn’t heard it in around 40 years until finding it on iTunes. So glad to have ‘rediscovered’ this timeless classic.
  • Perfect

    The previous reviewers speak with the eloquence to which I can only aspire.
  • A Christmas Must Have

    Like one of the other reviewers wrote, my father played this every year around Christmas. It was a staple in our family. Even as a child I recognized how incredible these arrangements are. It will always be the embodiment of the holiday to me. O Come O Come Emanuel and God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen have always been my favorites. Those horse hooves! I love that I have it digitally now, but I must admit that I am nostalgic for the pops and scratches from the vinyl album we always played.
  • One of my favorites to this day

    Ever since I was a child, I have always remembered listening to this album throughout the Christmas season, year after year. It is definitely one of my holiday favorites and always puts me in the Christmas spirit. It simply isn't the holidays without this album-- the music is absolutely beautiful and will forever be on my holiday playlist. Highly recommended.
  • This is the Glorious Sound of Christmas

    My father recorded this on reel to reel tape and later bought the reel to reel produced copy of this masterpiece recorded in 1962. This is the music of Christmas, the music of the message, and now I have it on compact disc and on the ipad. Nothing is better than this compilation from the year of my birth.

    Unequalled. Beautiful, powerful, talent with inspiration from above. 5 stars does not describe. Turn it up and marvel.
  • The Joy of Christmas

    One of the all time great Christmas albums. I have had it on the original LP, on tape and on CD. But, for goodness sake, get the title right. It has always been, "The Glorious Sound of Christmas," not "The Joy of Christmas." Read the artwork!!!

    There were just a few Christmas music staples in our home,and this was my dad's absolute favorite! When I was married and moved away, he taped it (remember cassette tapes?) so that I would be able to listen to it at Christmastime. Several of Dad's other favorites are no longer available, but are still on cassettes, waiting for me to digitally record them. This is one of them - but I am thrilled to be able to buy the digital files instead! Dad's favorite was "O Come, O Come Emmanuel" but mine is "God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen." Buy this and enjoy! It will bring the Christmas spirit into your home!

Music is the art of arranging sounds in time to produce a composition through the elements of melody, harmony, rhythm, and timbre. It is one of the universal cultural aspects of all human societies. General definitions of music include common elements such as pitch (which governs melody and harmony), rhythm (and its associated concepts tempo, meter, and articulation), dynamics (loudness and softness), and the sonic qualities of timbre and texture (which are sometimes termed the "color" of a musical sound). Different styles or types of music may emphasize, de-emphasize or omit some of these elements. Music is performed with a vast range of instruments and vocal techniques ranging from singing to rapping; there are solely instrumental pieces, solely vocal pieces (such as songs without instrumental accompaniment) and pieces that combine singing and instruments. The word derives from Greek μουσική (mousike; "(art) of the Muses"); see § Etymology and glossary of musical terminology.

Music can be divided into genres (e.g., country music) and genres can be further divided into subgenres (e.g., country blues and pop country are two of the many country subgenres), although the dividing lines and relationships between music genres are often subtle, sometimes open to personal interpretation, and occasionally controversial. For example, it can be hard to draw the line between some early 1980s hard rock and heavy metal. Within the arts, music may be classified as a performing art, a fine art or as an auditory art. Music may be played or sung and heard live at a rock concert or orchestra performance, heard live as part of a dramatic work (a music theater show or opera), or it may be recorded and listened to on a radio, MP3 player, CD player, smartphone or as film score or TV show.
