From beginning to end an amazing way to invite the Christmas spirit into your home! David Archuleta's performance of Silent Night brings peace into your heart. I highly recommend this on Blu-ray or DVD.

This was another benchmark of sophistication and good taste. I am so grateful that at least one faith remains a repository of great music, since as a Catholic, I get less and less of this music with each passing year.
Archuleta is OK, and his voice is pretty, but lacks the refinement of the orchestra and choir---his phrasing is choppy, but with PERFECT intonation.
