Christmas… Not the Way It Seems


Jean Watson is a classically trained artist and her latest Christmas CD is an excellent representation of her training (and gifting). It’s hard not to get drawn in by the beauty of the overall production.


There’s a bit of Celtic on “Coventry Carol,” and Phil Keaggy joins her on “Do You Here What I Hear,” adding a bit of guitar flare to an overall elegant tune. The Celtic flavor flows through “Lo How A Rose” and “Pat A Pan.” And the title track, “Christmas… Not the Way It Seems” is a graceful re-telling of Jesus’ birth that concludes with a celebration of sound.


My favorite tracks overall are “O Come O Come Emmanuel” with Jean’s enchanting vocals and a very subtle soundtrack that just seems to float behind her vocals.  And then there’s “O Holy Night.” It just about brings me to my knees crying. I love this song and Jean sings it so exquisitely.
