During the holiday season, Christmas music helps get us in the holiday spirit and brings joy to our family and friends. My favorite holiday music is Josh Groban's "Noel", the most beautiful Christmas album I've ever heard.

Groban is a young contemporary music artist with a voice of perfection. This is Groban's 4th studio album and his first Christmas album. It was released in October 2007. The album is a unique combination of traditional and contemporary songs that will touch your soul. The first time I listened to this album, it brought tears to my eyes and chills to my spine. It's so amazingly beautiful!

There are 13 tracks on the album including Silent Night, Little Drummer Boy, I'll Be Home For Christmas, Ave Maria, Angels We Have Heard On High {Featuring Brian McKnight}, Thankful, The Christmas Song, What Child Is This?, The First Noel {Featuring Faith Hill}, Petit Papa Noel, It Came Upon A Midnight Clear, Panis Angelicus and O Come All Ye Faithful.

The most touching track on the album is "I'll be Home For Christmas", which has messages from soldiers stationed in Iraq. One of my favorite songs is "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear", where Josh sings alone with a piano...just beautiful. The song "The First Noel" done with Faith Hill wasn't quite what I expected; her voice was a bit overpowering. Overall, the album is filled with inspiring and uplifting music.

Originally, we received this album as a very special gift, but have since purchased the album for others in our family. Groban's music will be enjoyed for years to come.
