Christmas kitsch meets a glorious voice

"And the result is a DVD filled with luxurious singing and devotion. Moreso than on her album named Sacred Songs as well Renee Fleming sings with elegance and poise, giving even the most rehashed evergreen a life of its own. What I love most about this DVD is its simplicity. An old school diva in a beautiful, classy dress rather than a girl strutting around trying to be sexy. Her voice has a velvety warmth I miss in nearly ever other full lyric soprano we have these days. Genuine emotion is pulsing through her singing, she's an artist willing to take risks, never just a voice but always an artist. This DVD is excellent for the holidays ahead and I'll be playing it more than once for I'd rather hear Renee Fleming perform these pieces than yet another pop singer."
The Divine Renee

"Wonderful and beautifully filmed concert in the incredible Mainz Cathedral starring Renee Fleming accompanied by two choirs. The singing is fabulous and Renee is obviously vocally giving everything she has to the performances. She also seems to really be enjoying the ability to hear her voice soar in the cathedral. "Laudaumus Te", and "Ave Maria" are the standouts.
Renee also looks fabulous with her classical beauty and designer gown."
Lovely lady with the Golden Voice

"Renée Fleming has been one of my favorite sopranos for several years now. As a voice teacher and an accompanist, I find her voice contains that rare combination of depth and brilliance, solidity and flexibility that is a rare and illusive. Her CDs and DVDs are never more than a short reach from my stereo or television.
When you combine her singing with my favorite time of year, Christmas, and my favorite European destination, Germany, you have a treat which cannot be surpassed. Her voice, soaring through the Cathedral of Mainz, is like a precious stone in an exquisite setting, and provides a muscial experience that transports me to that place and time at every hearing."
