On listened to the Christmas albums for you!

Are you tired of always listening to A Charlie Brown Christmas and your Christmas albums by Michael Bublé and Pink Martini? The Métro team listened to some local news that could become the new soundtrack of your holiday season… or not!

Moment of respite

Choral Art, vol. 7: Noël
Ensemble vocal Arts-Québec
****
Warning: this album is not the one that will raise your Christmas party. On the contrary, it is ideal if you want to treat yourself to a moment of contemplation during the madness of the holiday season. The choir of the Arts-Québec vocal ensemble will bewitch you and immediately immerse you in the holiday season, but in a gentle and solemn way. The performers beautifully revisit classic Christmas carols such as & nbsp; Sweet night, holy night or Joy to the World .

A family resemblance

Christmas at the Deschamps
Judi et Filles
*** 1/2
This album written and performed by Judi Richards and his daughters, Karine and Sarah-Émilie Deschamps, celebrate the pleasure of family reunions at the right time. The three women come up with catchy titles ( I love Christmas , Merry Christmas grandma, Bye Bye ) sometimes flirting with trad, sometimes with disco, always sprinkled with pretty vocal harmonies. A touch of melancholy ( On me said , Christmas inside ) punctuates the whole. And since it wouldn't be Christmas at the Deschamps without Yvon, the latter makes a small appearance.

Putumayo Presents Jazz Christmas
Various artists
*** 1/2
Here is a nice collection of Christmas songs! Strong point: all the pieces are performed by big names in jazz, Montrealer Oscar Peterson in the lead with his exquisite interpretation of Let It Snow . The fact that there are almost no lyrics on the album allows you to quietly revel in the holiday classics without having to throw your speaker out the window after 10 minutes … & nbsp; The compilation includes ten titles, including the brilliant Christmas In New Orleans .

Christmas (almost) harmonious

It tastes like Christmas
QW4RTZ
***
You can find everything on this double album: sober Christmas classics ( Holy Night , The Snow Trail ), cult pop songs ( All I Want for Christmas Is You , Last Christmas ), from the trad to raise the party ( Martin de la chasse-galerie , Medley trad ), culinary recipes ( Elegie of sandwich bread , My recipe for happiness , Gravlax ) and even a collaboration with Mr. Mousteille. If the a cappella quartet nicely showcases their harmonious voices, the too scattered ensemble is precisely lacking in harmony.

Christmas – Noël
Buzz Brass
***
After the success of his previous opus, Inspirations , the famous quintet returns with its new holiday album: Christmas. On the program, 12 arias from well-known classics such as Angels in our countryside , Let It Snow and Patapan. This ensemble, which has charmed Quebec, the United States, Asia and Europe since 2008, will certainly seduce your guests during your holiday dinners. Without offering a completely stunning proposition, Buzz Brass suggests elegant and refined musical arrangements.
